Thus, the 49-year-old climber broke his own record, which he set just recently, on May 15.

Kami Rita made his first ascent of Everest in 1994. For 25 years, he has been to the summit 24 times.

In addition to Everest, he, according to him, conquered most of the most difficult and dangerous peaks on Earth, including Kangchenjunga (8586 m), Cho Oyu (8188 m ), Lhotse (8156 m), and a number of others.

In addition to Kami Rita, only a few Nepalese Sherpas conquered the highest peak on the planet more than 20 times.

Sherpas are a small ethnic group living in mountains of Nepal. They traditionally act as guides and porters, accompanying groups of climbers. The experience of the Sherpas is invaluable, since they are adapted from birth to the harsh conditions of the highlands.
