Another day at the office: Sherpa completes record 23rd Everest climb

There are 378 climbers permitted to scale Everest this year alongside sherpas like Kami Rita

A Sherpa who has scaled to the summit of Mount Everest almost two dozen times broke his own record for most successful ascents of the world's highest peak.

His latest ascent took him two summits clear of two fellow Sherpas, who have successfully climbed the peak 21 times, hiking officials said.

Kami Rita Sherpa, 49, reached the 29,029ft (8,848m) peak shortly before 8am this morning, alongside other climbers, in a climb hampered by bad weather and strong wind.

Kami Rita first scaled Everest in 1994 and has been making trips almost every year since.

Department of Tourism, Mountaineering Section's first-class non-gazetted officer Rameshwor Niraula, informed from the Everest Base Camp that Sherpa set his feet on summit of the 8,848 metre high mountain and set a new world record of the most summits of Everest.

"I am not risen to break records, I just worked". Kami Rita started the climb from the Nepal side of the range, which is one of the two routes to get up top, the other being Tibet.

The Sherpas who serve as guides for the potential mountain climbers of Mount Everest first go up to the mountain themselves and prepare everything for the mountaineers who are expected to scale the mountain later.

Adverse conditions challenge climbers every time, and the previous year saw the death of 5 climbers including an experienced Sherpa guide.

"I am like a soldier who leaves behind their wives, children, and family to battle for the pride of the country", he told the AP. Their stamina and familiarity with the mountains quickly made them sought-after guides and porters.

On Tuesday, it was a team of Sherpa guides who again were the first to reach Everest's summit this year, completing their advanced work of setting up ropes and lines.

"I know Mount Everest very well, having climbed it 22 times, but at the same time I know I may or may not come back", he told the Associated Press news agency last month.

This season, almost 1,000 people, including 378 paying climbers, will attempt the summit.

Nepal has issued 378 permits to mountaineers for this year's spring climbing season.
