Sirbaz, 32, hails from the Aliabad location of Hunza in Gilgit-Baltistan and began his climbing occupation in 2016.
In 2019, he came to be the initial Pakistani to top Mount Lhotse, the world’s fourth-highest mountain at 8,516 m in Nepal, without making use of extra oxygen.
In addition, he summited the 8,125-metre-high Nanga Parbat in 2017, 8,611-metre-high K-2 in 2018 as well as Broad Optimal, which has an elevation of 8,163 metres in 2019. Previously this year, he climbed the 8,091-metre-high Anapurna hill, 8,848-metre-high Everest and also 8,035-metre-high Gasherbrum II.
On 4 of these explorations, he had actually been accompanied by late Muhammad Ali Sadpara.
