Sajid Sadpara successfully rescued from Mount Everest


Sajid Sadpara was rescued on Wednesday after he faced health-related issues during an expedition at Mount Everest in Kathmandu, Nepal.

According to the Pakistan Embassy in Nepal, Sajid was successfully air rescued from the Everest Base Camp and was under treatment at a hospital in Kathmandu.

The son of late Pakistani mountaineer Ali Sadpara was on an expedition with French mountaineers to explore a new route from Base Camp 1 to Camp II.

Earlier in July, it was reported that Sajid had retrieved the bodies of three missing climbers including his father, who went missing while attempting to summit K2 in February this year, from the ‘Bottleneck’ and secured them at Camp-4.

According to Sajid and government officials, the bodies were spotted below the Bottleneck by Sherpas.

Ali Sadpara, along with two colleagues – John Snorri Sigurjónsson from Iceland, and Juan Pablo Mohr Prieto from Chile – were declared dead on Feb 18, nearly two weeks after they went missing on the ‘Savage Mountain’.

The trio had lost contact with the Base Camp on February, 5 while attempting an unprecedented winter ascent without supplemental oxygen.
