Muhammad Ali Sadpara was, is, and will forever live in our hearts. His soul filled with love and the craze of mountains.
Back in 2015, there were 2 most difficult challenges in the world of Mountaineering, the Winter Summit of Nanga Parbat (8,126m) and K2 (8,611m).
In 2016, Muhammad Ali Sadpara climbed Nanga Parbat in winters for the first time and made history.
Mountain climbing is a different world, in this world, Mountains talk to the climbers and climbers talk back to them.
You need to be in love with mountains to know why does climbing matter?
His dream was K2, he wanted to hoist the Pakistani flag at the highest point in Pakistan, that too in winters which have never had done before.
Every year, many climbers come to Pakistan in winters just to take the honor of being the first to summit K2 in winters, this year Nepalese team did it, and how come our Hero come back without rising Pakistani flag at the summit of mighty K2.
Muhammad Ali Sadpara did summit the K2 but something happened on the descent and made K2 his permanent resting place.
The cause of death is still unknown and might be possible it will stay unknown forever.
As he got disappeared (it is possible that he fell in some crevasse or buried in a thick layer of snow, or the wind blew him up) but all I know is Muhammad Ali Sadpara, John Snorri and Juan Pablo got disappeared as many people have disappeared on K2 before.
Brave hats off to him, he was not an ordinary man but a man of steel who is taller than K2. And his name will live forever.
Rest in Peace all missing climbers of K2 Winter Summit 2020/21.
