Wasfia Nazreen has become the first Bangladeshi to scale Pakistan's K2, the second-highest mountain in the world.

The K2, located at 8,611 metres above sea level, is the second-highest mountain on Earth, after Mount Everest.

The 39-year-old Wasfia completed this mission with 11 other summiteers from different parts of the world, according to mountaineering guide company Elite Exped, reports UNB.

Elite Exped posted a photo of Wasfia and the other summiteers as well as the guide team members on Instagram on Friday.

Her seven summits' expedition which began in 2011 on the occasion of Bangladesh's 40 years of independence, ended with this one.

On May 26, 2012, she became the second woman from Bangladesh to summit Mount Everest. She has previously scaled South America's Aconcagua and Africa's Kilimanjaro.
