A YOUNG student Asad Memon (23) from Pakistani has set the record of being the first young Asian climber to summit Uhuru Peak in fourteen hours.
On his return, Mr Memon descended from the peak to the finish point in a short time of six hours without stopping at any point, drinking or eat anything.
High Commissioner Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary for Pakistan Muhammad Saleem congratulated Memon for the historic achievement of scaling up Mount Kilimanjaro.
Mr Memon scaled up Mt Kilimanjaro and reached the peak on February 15, 2021.
Speaking in Dar es Salaam over the weekend, Mr Saleem said Memon’s act would likely attract more people from Pakistan to visit Tanzania for the purpose of climbing the Africa rooftop.
