Nepali mountaineers make history by conquering K-2 first time in winter

ISLAMABAD (92 News) – A 10-member Nepali team made history by first time conquering the 8,611 meters K2, the world’s second-highest mountain, on Saturday.

The team was led by by Chhang Dawa Sherpa. During the recent expedition, a Spanish mountaineer died while returning to the Base Camp from Camp 1.

This long-sought achievement adds a stunning new chapter to mountaineering history. Located in Pakistan’s part of the Karakoram range, K2 is the last of the world’s 14 tallest mountains—all higher than 8,000 meters—to be climbed in winter. It is considered by far the most difficult and dangerous because of the technical climbing required to reach the top.
