Nepali woman climbs Everest for 10th time

On Thursday, a 48-year-old Nepali lady broke her own record for most climbs of the world’s highest peak Mount Everest by a female climber, according to her trekking business.

Lhakpa Sherpa last climbed the summit in 2018, climbing 8,848.86 meters (29,031.69 feet). The men’s record of 26 climbs is held by a fellow Nepali, Kami Rita Sherpa.

“Lhakpa has shattered her own record and is the first woman to climb all ten peaks,” her brother Mingma Gelu Sherpa, a representative of her Seven Summit Club mountaineering organization, informed the press.

Bhishma Kumar Bhattarai, a Nepali tourist officer, acknowledged her summit ascension.

Lhakpa was born in Sankhuwasabha’s eastern area, which is home to Makalu, the world’s fifth highest peak.

According to Jeevan Ghimire of the Shangrila-Nepal Trek trekking firm, seven members of a “All Black Expedition” made up of climbers from the US and Kenya scaled Mount Everest on Thursday.

Fewer than ten black mountaineers have previously reached the summit, but this was the first time an expedition’s entire membership was black, according to hiking officials.

Since its initial ascent in 1953 from both the Nepali and Tibetan sides, Everest has been climbed 10,657 times. Many individuals have attempted it multiple times, with 311 deaths.
