 In 2011 Nisar Hussain achieved unique distinction of being first Pakistani to climb Gasherbrum II four times, Gasherbrum I three times, Broad Peak two times beside summiting K2 and Nanga Parbat. Mr. Nisar Hussain also chose to become part of Gerfried Goschl winter expedition to Gasherbrum I with the aim of becoming first Pakistani to make first winter ascent of this difficult peak from the new route on South side. 

He along with other members of the summit party was successful in traversing this new and most difficult route on the mountain under extremely low temperatures (in the range of minus 50 to 70 degrees Centigrade) and strong winds (often blowing more than 50 kms per hour). He, along with Gerfried Goschl and Swiss climber Hehlen Cedric was last seen just below the Gasherbrum I summit on the fateful day of 9th March 2012 at 12 pm, when he along with his team mates disappeared and was declared lost near the Summit after aerial search conducted later on 15th March 2012.
