The boy has been fascinated by the idea of the mountain top since he was a child. He started his climbing journey when he was 11 years old, climbing to the top of Mecca at 3,885 meters, then climbing the tops of Musa Ka Musalla peak at 4,080 meters and Chembra at 4,600 meters. From there, he raised his passion to a new level by climbing 5,000, 6,000 and 8,000 meters. At the age of 17, he climbed 8,047 meters from the top of Broad Peak, the twelfth highest mountain in the world, and earned the nickname “Broad Boy“. Now, he is only 19 years old and has climbed to the highest mountain ever, namely the magnificent Mount Everest.
“Since I was a child, the idea of climbing Mount Everest has come to my mind. Now, about ten years later, my dream is about to come true. I am going to raise the green flag on the top of the highest mountain in the world!! The teenager shared a sentimental post a few days before the summit.
“The idea of me reaching Everest at 19 o’clock made everyone exasperated. But who can change fate? Fortunately, some people support me. This is enough to inspire my passion and help me stand up and achieve my goals on the ground, Mount Everest”!
He greeted his family, especially because his parents supported him most. He said: “I can’t thank my family enough.” He calls his father a “superhero” because he loves his “love of climbing” and has never stopped him from “dreaming about the impossible.” He also expressed his gratitude to his mother for being his motivation promoter since he was a child.
Kashif said that he has been researching, training and fitness for the past few years to stay motivated and prepare for this important moment. The broad boy wrote: “After years of waiting and preparation, it’s finally time to control my emotions. It has become very difficult. I am full of enthusiasm, energy and determination. I have loved mountain climbing for many years, but the adventure is unique. He said, no admittedly, Mount Everest is not a piece of cake, adding, “The order of Mount Everest is valued.”
