 Pakistani mountaineer Asad Ali announces to climb Africa's highest peak in record time

  • Pakistani mountaineer Asad Ali Memon focuses on a new record on New Year's Eve.
  •  Asad Ali Memon, a mountaineer from Larkana, says he will climb Mount Kelly Manjaro, Africa's highest peak, in less than 24 hours in February.
  • Talking to the news channel, Asad Ali Memon said that usually climbers climb the peak in 5 to 6 days but they want to become the first Pakistani to climb the peak in less than 24 hours.
  •  According to Asad Ali Memon, due to lack of resources, he will not be able to break the record of Swiss climber Carl Iglov to reach the 19,000 feet high peak in a minimum time of 6 hours and 24 minutes, but in less than 24 hours I aim to hoist the Pakistani flag on top of it.
  • According to Asad Ali Memon from Larkana, the weather will be difficult during the campaign, hot in the evening and cold at night, while rain is also expected.
  •  He said that he has been preparing for the last four months to carry out this feat.
  • He said that in order to complete the ascent within 24 hours, he would have to run a distance of 64 km from Marango Route to the summit. It usually rains in the area, where they will have to practice running on slippery ground, for which they will have more practice in Gilgit in January to run on ice with normal shoes.
  • He said he would not take any food or water with him except chocolate as he wanted to keep his weight to a minimum.
  • It is believed that Mount Kelly Manjaro is located in Tanzania, which will be the third mountain of their 'Seven Summit Challenge'. Are
