The 44-year-old extended her own record for the most climbs by a woman.

With this, he becomes the only man to climb Everest 22 times leaving Apa Sherpa and Phurba Tashi Sherpa behind, who have reached the top of the world 21 times.

Kami made his first ascent of Everest in 1994 when he was 24.

A total of 94 foreign climbers and Sherpas made it to the top of Everest on Wednesday alone.

Mr Kami Rita, 48, was one of six sherpas who took seven clients to the summit from the Nepali side, Mr Mingma Sherpa of Seven Summit Treks, who organised the expedition, said. He plans to summit the mountain at least three more times - meaning he'll set three more records.

He and his team started their expedition on Tuesday evening.

The daughter of a yak herder, Ms Lhakpa worked as a porter and kitchen hand on trekking and mountaineering expeditions, before becoming a climber herself. He said he wants to do this not to break records or set new ones but because of his passion and zeal to climb the Everest.

Nepal has issued 346 permits to mountaineers for this year's spring climbing season, which runs from mid-April to the end of May.

Without having any formal training on mountain climbing, Lhakpa, who grew up with 11 siblings, first climbed Mt Everest from Nepal side in 2000.

Sherpas are famous for guiding mountaineering expedition and majority come from Solukhumbu district, home to the Everest, or nearby mountainous districts.
