Nepali mountaineer Kami Rita Sherpa hopes to break his own record for climbing Everest, aiming for 25 summits.

The highest mountain on Earth, Mount Everest's summit is more than 29,000 feet above sea level.

A Nepalese Sherpa climber, who broke his own record by scaling Mount Everest for the 23rd time last week, on Tuesday climbed the world's highest peak for the 24th time, a government official confirmed here.

Mr Sherpa is a resident of Thame village in Solukhumbu district. His closest rivals, Apa Sherpa and Phurba Tashi Sherpa, scaled Everest 21 times each before retiring from mountain climbing.

His father was among the first Sherpa guides employed to help climbers reach the summit and Rita followed in his footsteps and then some.

Depending on your behavior, it can be determined whether or not you are using exam dumps and if so, penalties will be imposed. As you can see the retake policy is a bit lenient, but it is still wise to make sure that you pass at the first attempt.

Acharya said Rita, who goes by his first name Kami, said he wanted to climb the mountain one more time. He has already climbed most of the peaks above 8,000 metres including K2 and Annapurna, among others. Not only that, but the 49-year-old had just ascended Everest for the 23rd time on May 15-less than a week ago.

The short climbing window, which depends on favourable weather, generally falls in mid-May. In the current season, 381 people have received permits to carry out expeditions on the mountain, as part of 44 teams, according to Nepal's Department of Tourism.

The climbing season ends in May and hundreds of climbers are now on the Everest, trying to reach the top from both the Nepali and Tibetan sides of the mountain.

This season, almost 1,000 people, including 378 paying climbers, will attempt the summit.
