Summiting Sherpas Set Pair of Mount Everest Records

Summiting Sherpas Set Pair of Mount Everest Records

Kami Rita Sherpa, 48, stepped atop the peak of the 8,848-meter mountain, the world's highest, at 8.30 a.m., beating the record he shared with fellow guides Apa Sherpa and Phurba Tashi Sherpa, who have both climbed the mountain 21 times and do not have plans to climb it again.

The 48-year-old Sherpa guide from Nepal has climbed the 29,035-foot peak almost every year since starting at 24 years old. She broke her own record of the most summits by a woman.

The 44-year-old extended her own record for the most climbs by a woman.

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.

Regarding Sherpa's climb, Rajeev Shrestha of the Seven Summit Adventure agency in Kathmandu said he received a message from the base camp about it. Most of his male relatives have reached the top at least once.

Everest oxygen failure accidents avoided

Ethnic sherpas, renowned for their endurance and experience at high altitudes, serve as guides for many foreign mountaineers attempting to climb the highest Himalayan peaks. Lhakpa had reportedly scaled Mt Everest eight months after the birth of her first daughter and while she was two months pregnant with her second child.

Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Wednesday flagged off an expedition to Mount Everest at the National Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports (NIMAS) campus at Dirang in West kameng district of the State.

Sherpa was also given a Town of West Hartford pin, which she planned to attach to the West Hartford Libraries banner that she displayed on the top of the world's tallest mountain when she reached the summit a year ago.

"They are searching for him on the way down", he said of the team that has just reached the summit.

Nepal has issued 346 permits to mountaineers for this year's spring climbing season, which runs from mid-April to the end of May. Some 26 climbers had to descend to fix their oxygen regulators.
