Scaling Everest for the 7th time…

Scaling-Everest-for-the-7thA Nepalese woman has climbed Mount Everest for a record seventh time.
Lhakpa Sherpa, 42, who works in a 7-Eleven shop in Connecticut in the US, reached the summit of the 8,850-metre peak from the Tibetan side on Friday, said Rajiv Shrestha, of 7 Summits Adventure, the company that organised her expedition.
She has broken her own record for the most summits of the world’s highest mountain by a woman, Shrestha said.
Sherpa was accompanied to the top by a Nepalese guide. Three hours later, eight members of a Russian team and eight guides climbed the same northern route, Shrestha said.
Sherpa, one of 11 children, was born in eastern Sankhuwasabha district, where the world’s fifth-highest mountain, Makalu, is located.
Two Sherpa climbers share between them the record of 21 ascents of Everest, the most number of climbs by men.
More than 330 people climbed Everest from the Nepalese side this month. Expeditions had been forced off the world’s tallest peak by an earthquake last year that killed at least 18 people at base camp.
