First-Ever Group Of Pakistani Females Cross Haramosh La

A group of three Pakistani women, Dr. Sana Jamil, Ammara Sharif, and Sohniya Baber, along with their teammates Abduhu and Dr. Raheel, achieved a significant milestone on Friday (June 16) by successfully crossing the challenging Haramosh La pass from Arundu to Kutwal. This accomplishment makes them the first-ever Pakistani female group to complete this difficult trek. Haramosh La is known for being one of the toughest and most dangerous passes in Pakistan.

The trek involves navigating a glacier on the upper Chugolangma, which is heavily fissured and carries the constant risk of avalanches. The ascent on the west side is steep, often requiring the use of ropes for about 600 to 700 meters. Due to its demanding nature, this trek is suitable only for experienced trekkers with advanced mountaineering skills.

On the same day, well-known Pakistani mountaineer Sajid Sadpara made an announcement. Sajid, the son of the legendary mountaineer Ali Sadpara, shared his plan to climb Nanga Parbat Mountain without the assistance of supplemental oxygen or Sherpas. Having already conquered six of the world’s highest peaks without artificial oxygen, including Mount Everest in May 2023, Sajid aims to climb all 14 eight-thousanders without the use of supplemental oxygen. His remarkable achievements include scaling K2, Gasherbrum-I, Gasherbrum-II in Pakistan, and Manaslu in Nepal without the help of supplemental oxygen or Sherpas.

These accomplishments by Pakistani adventurers showcase their determination, skill, and passion for pushing the limits of human potential in the field of mountaineering and exploration.
