The Lahore-born mountaineer, who is also known as ‘The Broad Boy,’ is the only Pakistani mountaineer to summit three mountains over 8000m in a month.
Kashif, who holds two Guinness records for the youngest ever to summit both K2 and Mount Everest, is also the first Pakistani to summit the Kanchenjunga Mountain.
In July 2021, Kashif broke the record of Sajid Sadpara, the son of the legendary climber, Muhammad Ali Sadpara, to summit the second-highest peak, at the age of 20.
