On Wednesday, a pair of veteran Sherpas each set a record for Mount Everest climbs.
Mr Kami Rita Sherpa, a professional guide, and Ms Lhakpa Sherpa, who works in a supermarket in CT, reached the summit from opposite sides of the 8,848m mountain yesterday. "But I am not overexcited as it is a part of my professional job", Sherpa had said before leaving Kathmandu for the expedition.
Mr Kami Rita first reached the top of Everest in 1994 when working for a commercial expedition.
"It has obviously excited me with the feeling that I am going to set a new world record".
Born in Solukhumbu district that is home to Mt. Everest, Kami started his career in mountaineering as a porter in 1992.
Number of times Ms Lhakpa, 44, who works in a supermarket in CT, has reached the world's highest peak.
Similarly, Lhakpa Sherpa, 45, has also broken her own record by successfully climbing Everest for the ninth time, the most by a woman in the world, confirmed Mingma Gelu Sherpa of Seven Summit Treks.
"Kami Rita Sherpa reached the summit this morning at around 8:30 a.m. local time along with other climbers", Gyanendra Shrestha, an official at the Department of Tourism under the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, told Xinhua via telephone from the base camp.
The twin records come on the heels of Australian Steve Plain becoming the fastest person to conquer the highest mountains on all seven continents.
Both of the other previous record holders are retired from climbing.
The climbing season for runs from March through May and hundreds of climbers are now on Everest, trying to reach the top from both the Nepali and Tibetan sides of the mountain. In the autumn, he guides clients to smaller peaks in Nepal.
The team reached the summit on Sunday afternoon while fixing ropes for foreign climbers, who will begin this week to ascend the mountain.
On the Tibetan side, a team was forced to retreat from just below the summit when at least 11 of their bottled oxygen systems failed. "There are no reported injuries".
Lhakpa stood at the top of Everest early on Wednesday too.
