Kathmandu: Record holding climber Kami Rita Sherpa on Sunday scaled Mt Everest, the highest peak in the world, for the 29th time, beating his own record for most times to the summit.

Kami Rita reached the 8,849-meter (29,032-foot) peak early morning on Sunday, according to Tashi Lakpa Sherpa, Chief Executive Officer at 14 Peaks Expedition. 

“This morning at 7:25am, Kami Rita Sherpa successfully summited the world’s highest mountain Mount Everest for an incredible 29th time,” Sherpa, Chief Executive Officer at 14 Peaks Expedition, wrote on Facebook.

Kami Rita, a native of Thame village in Solukhumbu, Nepal, working as Senior Guide at 14 Peaks Expedition has dedicated his life to mountaineering and has become synonymous with the world’s highest peak. 

Born on January 2, 1970, he developed a deep passion for climbing from a young age and has been scaling mountains for over two decades, Tashi Lakpa wrote.

Sherpa’s mountaineering journey began in 1992 when he joined an expedition to Everest as a support staff member. Since then, Kami Rita has fearlessly embarked on numerous expeditions, summiting Everest multiple times.

Rita first climbed Everest in 1994 and has been climbing to the top almost every year since then.
