Ace mountaineer Sirbaz Ali added another feather to his cap on Tuesday when he successfully scaled the world's tallest mountain, the Everest, only the second Pakistani to achieve this feat without using supplementary oxygen.

Ali, who had previously summitted the 8,849-metre peak using bottled oxygen, reached the top at around half past 12. He emulated the achievement of Sajid Sidpara, who was the first to scale the Everest without oxygen support.
