 At the age of 20, he developed a passion for various outdoor sports. He made the first paragliding flight over Mount Erciyes, climbed up the Great Demirkazýk mountain´s north wall, and dove into the underground waters of the Altýnbeþik and Kýrkgözler Caves.

 

Between 1992 and 1994, Mahruki climbed the five highest former Soviet mountains in Asia (Khan Tengri, Lenin Peak, Peak Korzhenevskaya, Communism Peak and Peak Pobeda), which are all over 7,000 metres high. This achievement gained him the honorific title "Snow Leopard", awarded by the Russian Climbing Federation. This recognition led him to his high altitude mountaineering career.

Mahruki summited Mount Everest (8,848 m.) on May 15, 1995, being the first ever Turkish and Muslim person to do so. In 1996, he completed the climbing of Seven Summits in seven continents (Everest, Aconcagua, Vinson Massif, Kilimanjaro, McKinley, Elbrus and Kosciuszko), being the youngest person to do so.
