Nepalese Mountaineer Summits Mount Everest For The 29th Time

Nepal’s renowned mountaineer, Kami Rita, has scaled Mount Everest for the 29th time, surpassing his own remarkable achievement, confirmed expedition organisers. Taking advantage of the wonderful weather, Kami Rita and the Sherpas from Seven Summits Treks accomplished this achievement early on Sunday morning.

Posting on Instagram from base camp last week, he expressed gratitude for the opportunity to fulfil his dream once again.

When Kami Rita successfully climbed Everest twice in a week last year, he set the first record. With 27 summit ascents to his credit, fellow Sherpa guide Pasang Dawa has been a friendly rival to him. As the son of a pioneering Sherpa guide, Kami Rita, often known as the “Everest Man,” has been an invaluable guide for international climbers since his first trip in 1994.

Nepal expects a busy climbing season as it grants hundreds of climbing permits to international tourists this month. Even though the majestic summit of Everest is so alluring, the past year’s climbing season was tragic, with 18 deaths out of the more than 600 successful climbers.

However, Nepal continues to be an ideal destination for climbers, home to eight of the ten highest peaks in the world, and it attracts thousands of enthusiasts each spring.
