Sherpa Kami Rita Sets Record with 22nd Successful Climb of Mount Everest

May 16, 2018-With the 2018 Everest climbing season officially beginning from Sunday, at least 94 climbers stood atop the world highest peak Mount Everest on Wednesday.

Mr Kami Rita Sherpa, a professional guide, and Ms Lhakpa Sherpa, who works in a supermarket in CT, reached the summit from opposite sides of the 8,848m mountain yesterday.

Meanwhile, Lhakpa Sherpa also reached the summit Wednesday, marking her ninth trip up the mountain.

Past year seven people lost their lives on the world's highest peak, while 449 summited from the Nepal side and at least another 120 made it to the top from the north side in Tibet.

The 48-year-old Sherpa guide from Nepal has climbed the 29,035-foot peak almost every year since starting at 24 years old.

He has already climbed most of the peaks above 8,000 meters including K2 and Annapurna, among others.

Iswari Paudel of Himalayan Guides Nepal, the company assigned to fix the ropes, confirmed that the team has scaled the mountain. However, an informed source from Everest Base Camp told The Kathmandu Post that Phurba Tashi may climb Everest again.

A boom in climbers has made mountaineering a lucrative business since Sir Edmund Hillary and sherpa Tenzing Norgay made the first ascent in 1953. She now lives in the U.S. and works at a departmental store.

The route to the summit was opened up by a team of Sherpa guides earlier this week. Xia Boyu, 70, reached the top of the world's highest peak at 8:40 am, becoming the first double leg amputee to accomplish the feat from the Nepal side.

He was taken to a hospital for a checkup but appeared to be in good condition.

More than 340 climbers will attempt the Everest summit in the coming weeks.
