GILGIT: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif gave away a cheque of five million rupees to a Pakistani mountaineer, Hassan Sadpara in recognition of his services for the promotion of mountaineering in the country.

Sadpara has climbed all 8000-meter plus peaks in Pakistan, including K-2.

Hassan once complained, "“I am surprised to see that when the defeated cricket team returns home, they are greeted by ministers and other senior government officials. However, when I returned after conquering the world’s highest peak and planting our national flag on top of Mount Everest, I hardly felt welcomed.”

Despite his astonishing feats in mountain-climbing, Hassan Sadpara has had to ask the government for financial assistance several times to make his expeditions possible.
