He has already climbed most of the peaks above 8,000 meters including K2 and Annapurna, among others.

Mr Kami Rita first reached the top of Everest in 1994 when working for a commercial expedition. In the autumn, he guides clients to smaller peaks in Nepal. Fellow guides Apa and Phurba Tashi had previously been tied for the record at 21 but have both retired from climbing.

Ms Lhakpa Sherpa, 44, reached the peak for a ninth time via the northern, Tibetan route, her brother Mingma Gelu Sherpa said.

Rajeev Shrestha of the Seven Summit Adventure agency in Kathmandu said he received a message from the base camp about the successful climb.

Apart from Kami, dozens climbed the mountain Wednesday, Shrestha said from the Base Camp.

Sherpa is a single mom to three kids and lives in Hartford, Connecticut where she works as a dishwasher at the local Whole Foods.

The other two previous summit record-holders are also Sherpas.

Shrestha said a total of 94 climbers reached the summit on Wednesday because of good weather conditions.

He completed the seven climbs in 177 days - nine days quicker than the previous record - after reaching the top of Everest on Monday (May 14).

She joined her first Everest expedition in 2000.

His son Xia Dengping, who was with him at the airport, told reporters his father is a hero.

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.
