Karachi: Eisha Sajid, a 16-year-old rising alpinist from Pakistan, has her sights set on climbing Nepal’s Mt. Manaslu, which rises to an elevation of 8,163 meters.

Eisha has already arrived in Nepal for her mission, which she plans to finish by the end of this month.

If she is successful, she will surpass the record set by Indian Arjun Vajpai in 2011 when he ascended Manaslu at the age of 18.

Shehroze Kashif, who ascended Broad Peak at the age of 17, will no longer hold the record for being the youngest Pakistani to climb an eight-thousander.

November 30 will mark Eisha’s 17th birthday.

Eisha, a military officer’s daughter, intended to climb the broad peak in July but was forced to call off her expedition because of bad weather and rockfall.

Eisha will be travelling to the Manaslu summit with the assistance of world record holder Nirmal Purja of Nepal, according to Karrar Haidri, secretary of the Alpine Club of Pakistan.
