On Sunday morning, Kami Rita Sherpa, popularly known as “Everest Man,” of Nepal broke his own record by ascending Mount Everest for the 29th time.
The 54-year-old Sherpa climber and guide set a record for the 28th summit last spring when he successfully ascended the highest peak, which is 8848.86 meters tall, twice in a week. However, the climber has made indications that he intends to ascend the peak twice more.

Mr Kami Rita had declared prior to the summit that he “has no plan of climbing Sagarmatha (Nepalese name for Mount Everest) for any specified number of times.”

As per the officials from the Department of Tourism, the record-setting climber reached the summit of Everest at 7:25 AM (NST) on Sunday while guiding an expedition organized by the ‘Seven Summit Treks’.

“Congratulations to Kami Rita Sherpa @kamiritasherpa a senior guide at Seven Summit Treks for the 29th successful ascent of Mt Everest this morning at 7:25 AM, 12 May 2024. This ascent earns Kami Rita the title of ‘Most Successful Ascent of Mt. Everest by an Individual,'” the Seven Summit Treks shared in an Instagram post on Sunday morning breaking the news about the successful summit.

Sherpa started his journey from Kathmandu at the end of May, traveling with a group of about 28 climbers on a mountaineering expedition. As a guide for the climbers, Kami Rita has been ascending Sagarmatha.

In the 71-year history of Sagarmatha climbing, Mr. Kami Rita holds the record for the most ascents on the highest peak in the world.

Last year, Pasang Dawa Sherpa, who is also from Solukhumbu, accomplished the 27th ascent of Sagarmatha. However, it’s unclear if he plans to ascend Sagarmatha this time.
