Hassan Sadpara was born in Sadpara village ,a village which is the nearest one from the Skardu city but the most far village in the sense of development and facilities .At the time of his childhood and boyhood there was neither a hospital nor a school ,where children could get education ,that was the only reason that all people of that time including Hassan Sadpara were deprived of even the basic education.Hassan Sadpara later on moved to Skardu city and started his mountaineering career ,initially from low porter ,then to high altitude porter and eventually to a successful mountaineer.He also owned a shop in Sadpara market ,Hussaini Chowk Skardu where he made available almost every necessary mountaineering equipment.So in Summer he used to have his mountaineering expeditions and after getting free from those he used to run his shop .

  • His friendly nature
  • His simplicity 
Beside all the peaks of success he achieved he was still down to earth ,beside being a national hero he used to meet people normally ,used to talk them with good attitude or in short Hassan sadpara never showed arrogant behavior after achieving the bundles of success and that was the reason people use to love him and admire him .

01: Establishing a mountaineering school was among his  top priorities ,because he used to believe that if the people and children were given proper knowledge and education of mountaineering then their can be a very positive progress in the field of mountaineering.His dream remained unaccomplished because of his sudden death.
02: Scaling and conquering all the 14 highest mountains of the world;Hassan Sadpara was too much determined and dedicated to scale all the tough 14 highest challenging mountains of the world ,and for which he wanted the government of Pakistan and other foreign mountaineering clubs to sponsor his expeditions,but unfortunately this dream also remained unaccomplished because of his sudden death.
Hassan Sadpara was the only mountaineer who did not used to carry oxygen gadgets while ascending the mountains ,it is well known said that Hassan Sadpara Scaled all the mountains without oxygen gadgets .
Hassan Sadpara was no doubt a real precious gift of Allah almighty who served and represented Pakistan ,It is no doubt a huge feeling to raise the national flag at the top of highest mountains and it is obviously an honor.

The pride of Sadpara ,the pride of Baltistan and the pride of Pakistan left us on 2016 ,when he was diagnosed as a blood cancer patient.The famous chowk of skardu "Parishan chowk" is now dedicated to Hassan Sadpara and given the name "Hassan Sadpara Chowk" followed by his amazing statue ,The statue which was made by an arts student to pay tribute to this precious hero .
