A Nepalese mountain guide has climbed Mount Everest for the tenth time. The 48-year-old Lhakpa Sherpa reached the top of the 8,848.88-meter mountain early Thursday morning, said the head of the expedition company Seven Summit Adventure, Mingma Gelu Sherpa, who organized the expedition and is also Lhakpa’s brother.
Previously, Lhakpa Sherpa had an entry in the Guinness Book of Records for the world’s highest number of Everest climbs by women. She grew up in Nepal and now lives with her family in the USA.
Prior to her ascent, mountain guide Kami Rita Sherpa recently improved his Guinness record. He stood on the highest mountain in the world for the 26th time.
