On Wednesday, a pair of veteran Sherpas each set a record for Mount Everest climbs.

Kami Rita first scaled Everest at age 24, and has made the trip nearly every year since then. He plans to summit the mountain at least three more times - meaning he'll set three more records.

"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.

Officials said Kami Rita reached the summit on Wednesday with a team of foreign climbers, while Lakpa Sherpa reached the peak from the Chinese side. He first reached the top of Everest in 1994.

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.

Before leaving the Everest base camp, Kami had announced that he intends to climb Everest 25 times.
