Pakistani young climber Asad Ali Memon reached the Mweka gate (finish point) at midnight (February 15-16 night) after climbing Uhuru peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro, in United Republic of Tanzania within 20 hours. He had started from the Umbwe Gate (start point) very early morning on February 15, 2021 and taken the most challenging route to the summit. His mission to traverse the summit and return within one day (24 hours) has been achieved well within the time limit despite being a snowy and rainy weather during the day.
He has added a new feather to his mountaineering achievements at a young age of 23.
His solo summit of Uhuru peak will contribute to opening new vistas of collaboration in adventure sports and tourism between Pakistan and Tanzania.
