Nepali climber Mingma Gyalje Sherpa along with his team has left for the Karakoram region in Pakistan.
Sherpa along with his Nepali team will be attempting to climb the world’s second highest peak this season aiming to be the first to make a successful winter ascent of K2.
Sherpa had already climbed K2 twice– in 2014 and 2017 – in the summer season.
Till date, among 14 peaks above 8,000 m in the world, K2 remains the only unclimbed mountain in the winter season.
He has planned to climb the mountain without oxygen.
