PTC News Desk: Nepali Sherpa climber Kami Rita has summited Everest for the 29th time, breaking his own record of 28 ascents. He now has the record for the most ascents of the world's tallest peak in its 71-year climbing history.

Kami Rita Sherpa, also known as the 'Everest man,' left Kathmandu for the Spring Season Everest expedition with a team of about 28 climbers. Seven Summit Treks organised the expedition to summit the world's highest peak.


In the previous spring season, the 54-year-old Sherpa climber and guide climbed the highest peak, which stands at 8848.86 metres, twice in a week, setting a record for the 28th summit. However, the climber has hinted that he plans to climb the peak twice this time.

Prior to the summit, Kami Rita stated that he "has no plan of climbing Sagarmatha (Nepalese name for Mount Everest) for any specified number of times."

According to Department of Tourism officials, the record-breaking climber reached the summit of Mount Everest at 7:25 a.m. (NST) on Sunday while leading an expedition organised by 'Seven Summit Treks'.

"Congratulations to Kami Rita Sherpa @kamiritasherpa a senior guide at Seven Summit Treks for the 29th successful ascent of Mt Everest this morning at 7:25 AM, 12 May 2024. This ascent earns Kami Rita the title of 'Most Successful Ascent of Mt. Everest by an Individual,'" the Seven Summit Treks shared in an Instagram post.
