Musa Ibrahim, the first Bangladeshi to conquer Mount Everest, returned home yesterday morning after conquering Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest peak, situated in Tanzania.
Musa along with co-mountaineer Niaz Morshed Patwari reached the peak, Kibo, 19,340 feet from the sea level, at 7:48am local time on September 11.
Another member of the team MA Sattar returned from Baranco camp, situated at 13,000 feet from the sea level, due to altitude sickness.
Kibo, locally known as Uhuru, is the fourth highest peak among the world's top seven peaks.
By conquering Kilimanjaro, Musa, also a sub editor of The Daily Star, completed his second venture to scale the seven highest mountains in the world's seven continents.
"I am a bit closer to my goal. Now I will have to conquer the remaining five summits to accomplish my mission,” said Musa, expressing his reaction.
Musa wishes to begin his ascent on Vinson in the Ellsworth Mountains in Antarctica on January next year.
