Karachi: Pakistanis on Twitter paid tribute to renowned mountaineer Ali Sadpara who went missing during his winter K2 ascent last week. 

Taking to the social site, scores of Twitter users honored the missing mountaineer and still awaits a miracle for his safe return. People highlighted how Gilgit/Baltistan-hailed Sadpara hoisted Pakistan’s flag at different highest peaks in the world.

It must be noted here that Sadpara had climbed eight out of the world’s 14 highest peaks. This was his second attempt to climb K2 in winter along with his team members including his son Sajid Sadpara, Iceland’s John Snorri, and Chile’s MP Mohr.

Sajid had returned to the base camp from 8,000m after suffering from breathing issues but Ali, Snorri, and Mohr continued the summit. Sajid claimed that his father and team completed the summit and went missing on their return.

A rescue operation by Pakistan Army is underway to locate the missing mountaineers amid bad weather. Meanwhile, the nation still awaits a miracle for Sadpara and the team’s safe return.
