Kami Rita is a Sherpa guide who since May 2018 has been holding the lead for most ascents of the world’s highest peak, 8,848 meters above sea level.

Earlier, in 2017 Kami Rita became the third person to ascend the well-known ‘Roof of the Planet’ 21 times, sharing that achievement with Apa Sherpa and Phurba Tashi Sherpa, both now retired from climbing.

On May 16, 2018, aged 48, Kami Rita became the first person in the world to climb Everest 22 times.

In April of that year she stated to the media that she would climb Everest 25 times before retiring, a feat she accomplished today.

The Nepalese mountaineer also conquered other peaks over 8,000 meters, such as K-2 (8,611 m), Cho-Oyu (8,201 m), Manaslu (8,163 m), Annapurna (8,091 m) and Lhotse (8,516 m).

This season, the Nepal Department of Tourism allowed 44 expeditions to climb Mount Everest and among the mountaineers are 92 women and 315 men.
