19-year-old Shehroze Kashif became the youngest Pakistani climber to climb the world's highest peak, Mount Everest (8848.86 meters high).

Lahore-based Shehroze Kashif is also the youngest Pakistani climber to climb Pakistan's fourth highest peak, Broad Peak (8047 meters high) at the age of 19.

He used artificial oxygen to climb Broad Peak and Mount Everest.

Shehroze Kashif has been dubbed the 'Broad Boy' for leading a Broad Pack at the age of 19.

Before, Samina Baig, the first Pakistani woman to climb Mount Everest, was the youngest Pakistani climber to reach the world's highest peak at the age of 23.

Shehroze Kashif has been informing his fans through social media for more than a month at Everest Base Camp in Nepal.

In an interview in February, he spoke in detail about climbing, fitness, and financial spending to achieve big goals.

He said, "There is no competition between the level of training of a cricketer and a climber, sometimes we have to climb for 26 hours at a time”.

Shehroze Kashif had said, "The strangest thing in the world is the human brain. You can't beat it. If your brain stops working at altitude, it's a big thing. You have to prepare yourself for such situations”.

In the same interview, he had said that he wanted to form a team with Sajid Sadpara, the youngest climber to climb K2 at the age of 20.

Shehroze Kashif had said that if the government could give Rs 10 million to each cricketer, it could do anything.

At the age of 11, he climbed a 3,885-meter-high spider-pack, followed by Moses' Masala, which is 4,080 meters high.

Then, at the age of 14, he headed to the Gondgro La K2 base camp and completed the Khurdopin Pass track at the age of 15.

He said, "I asked him to take a guide with him to the heights of Shehroze's first expedition and since then he has gone on all expeditions on his own”.

Shehroze’s father said, "So far I have collaborated with Shehroze and there has been a lot of response to his success. He is probably the most popular Pakistani mountaineer after Muhammad Ali Sadpara”.
