The Nepalese Sherpa guide Kami Rita climbed Mount Everest for the 25th time on Friday. With that he broke his own record for the most climbs of the highest peak in the world. After the descent Rita posted a video on Facebook from the moment of happiness on the summit – with the words: «More than excited and happy to be on the summit of Mount Everest for the 25th time. We’re still partying. “
Together with eleven other Sherpas, the 51-year-old reached 8,849 meters above sea level around 6 p.m. – as the first group ever to conquer the summit this year. The Sherpas did not climb for pleasure. They were in the process of fastening ropes on the icy route so that hundreds of paying climbers from all over the world could reach the top of Everest in the next few weeks.
