Acknowledged for his outstanding services

And sensible approach in handling difficult situations

Completed Broad Peak Expedition in 1985

He used his professional knowledge while;

Completing the Gasherbrum 2 expedition

A fighter leader and a promising professional

Who had the ability to think logically

On the day of 23rd march 1987

Tamgha-i- Basalat has been conferred on him

For his distinction in the field of mountaineering

He always used to say that,

For selecting this field of mountaineering

You must have three rules

First: Passion for mountaineering

Secondly: You have the courage to lead

Third: Help others by guiding them

An extrovert and a humble person

Used to send postcards from base camps, but;

Who knows...

Who knows ...

On the bright day of 27th July, 1987

On his way of summiting Gasherbrum 1(11th highest peak on earth)

He was amongst the four summitters

In an emergency situation

They have to bring back one of their sick friend to the base camp

But; they all got hit by an avalanche

A gloomy silence

No postcard, no call, no connection

A 28 years old young gentleman

A true soul left this world forever

Leaving behind a beautiful wife, 10 months old son and his parents

Martyr speaks

Yes, the martyr speaks


Sara Shahid.
