A Nepali sherpa has scaled Mount Everest for a record 27th time, beating his own record, a government official and his hiking company said.

Kami Rita Sherpa, 53, scaled the 8,849-metre (29,032ft) mountain early on Wednesday morning along the traditional southeast ridge route, guiding a foreign climber.

“Yes, Kami Rita climbed Sagarmatha for the 27th time,” said tourism official Bigyan Koirala, referring to the mountain by its Nepali name.

Thaneswar Guragai, the general manager of the Seven Summit Treks, for which Kami Rita works, said he got to the summit at 8.30 am (2.45 am BST) along with the foreign climber.
