According to news published on Thursday, the Pakistani mountaineer Asif Bhatti, stranded at Nanga Parbat after developing snow blindness, made it safely to base camp.
According to the sources, Bhatti, who had become stuck on Monday, was taken to Skardu by an army helicopter from the base camp. Bhatti, a professor at Air University in Islamabad, will return to the nation’s capital after he has had some time to rest and recover from his injuries.
Nanga Parbat is the ninth-highest peak in the world at 8,126 meters, and it is deemed hazardous due to the high number of people who have died while climbing it. Due to its death-to-ascent ratio of 22.3%, it is ranked as the third most hazardous mountain peak in the entire globe.
Bhatti received his Ph.D. from the Air University in Islamabad. He also received his master’s degrees from the Hitec University in Taxila and the Quaid-i-Azam University in Islamabad. According to what was written on Bhatti’s LinkedIn profile, he has been climbing mountains for more than 13 years.
The previous trip that Bhatti led to Nanga Parbat took place in 2017.
