A Sherpa who has scaled to the summit of Mount Everest almost two dozen times broke his own record for most successful ascents of the world's highest peak.
The climbing season ends in May and hundreds of climbers are now on the Everest, trying to reach the top from both the Nepali and Tibetan sides of the mountain.
Except Sherpa, no one has climbed the mountain more than 21 times.
"The 49-years-old veteran climber Kami Rita Sherpa from Thame village of Solukhumbu made 23rd successful climbs over the world's highest peak; Mt. Everest (8848m)".
Last year, Sherpa had climbed Mt Everest for the 22nd time and became the only Mountaineer in the world to hold the record for most summits on Mt Everest.
A guide for more than two decades, he first summited the 8,848-metre (29,029-foot) peak in 1994 when working for a commercial expedition.
In addition to his almost two dozen summits of Everest, Rita has scaled several other peaks that are among the world's highest, including K-2, Cho-Oyu, Manaslu and Lhotse.
