Twitter was filled with tributes on Thursday, hours after Pakistani mountaineer Muhammad Ali Sadpara's family declared him and two other missing foreign climbers dead.
Announcing the tragic news, Ali Sadpara's son, Sajid Sadpara said that he would keep his "father’s mission alive and fulfil his dream."
Sadpara, Iceland's John Snorri, and Chile's Juan Pablo Mohr had departed for their journey on February 3 after Sadpara's birthday, asking fans and admirers to pray for them.
They had started their attempt for the final summit in the early hours of February 5, hoping to accomplish the herculean task by afternoon.
According to updates posted on Snorri's Facebook account on Friday, at 12:29 pm, the GPS stopped working and had not been updated for six hours after that.
Ali Sadpara's management revealed a few days ago that the government and other stakeholders were employing their best efforts to find Sadpara and the other climbers who went missing, despite him being gone for almost 10 days.
Here's how Twitter reacted to the mountain climber's demise:
