Sadpara aimed to climb K2, the highest peak in Pakistan in the current season. It was the only summit that he could climb from the eight thousand peaks in Pakistan. He climbed up the Broad Peak, Gasherbrum I, Gasherbrum II, and Nanga Parbat 17 times. None other Pakistani has ever climbed mountains above 8000 meters.
Sadpara has made two attempts to reach the summit of K2 previously. However, both failed due to the weather. Sadpara was also believed to be the coach for Ali Sadpara, who died last year while attempting to climb the K2, Hasan Sadpara, and several other climbers.
Climbers, legislators, journalists, and members of the civil society offered their condolences to Sadpara's family, calling his death a "great loss" for Pakistan mountaineering. They also honored the climber for his efforts in adventure tourist promotion. Sadpara's expedition manager, Saad Munawar, was equally grieved by the news.
"Ali Raza's death has left me heartbroken. Death is, without a doubt, the most. "An important reality of life, "He remarked on his Instagram account. "A legend will be missed in Pakistan. Mountaineers in Pakistan will miss their mentor, and the mountains will miss their best friend."On Twitter, American climber Luke Smithwick posted a photo of Sadpara that he claims were shot while climbing Gasherbrum-II last summer. He added that although he was in another team still we spent a lot of time together and worked along for 8000- meters on mountains. That is how peaks are achieved. According to mountaineer Sirbaz Khan, Sadpara was known as "ustaadon ka ustaad" since he trained an entire generation of climbers (teachers).
General Qamar Javed Bajwa, chief of the Pakistan Army, has also shown his grief towards this major loss of Pakistan. He further prayed for his departed soul and shared his grief with his family.
The hopeful young mountaineer "pathfinder" Abdul Joshi was shocked by the reports. "Feels like everyone is lying... perhaps it's my wish. We will forever remember you Apo Ali Raza," the man said, adding that Sadpara was more than the most skilled mountaineer but the "best human being."
