Veteran mountaineer and environmentalist Nazir Sabir speaks at the Aga Khan University Walking in the shadow of giants – By Qasim A. Moini

KARACHI: Veteran mountaineer and environmentalist Nazir Sabir makes climbing 8,000-metre-plus mountains sound a lot easier than it actually is. At least this is how it appeared during a lecture he delivered on Thursday as he took all those present on a virtual tour of the Roof of the World by relating the many adventures he has had in his over three-decade-long career scaling the mighty peaks of the Karakoram and the Himalaya ranges, among others.


Renowned Pakistani mountaineer and environmentalist Nazir Sabir, the first Pakistani to stand at the summit of Mount Everest, lamented that his country, despite hosting some of the world’s highest peaks, lacks national patronage that could establish a mountaineering institute.
