A Mount Everest guide has set a record for climbing the world’s highest mountain the most times.

Earlier this week, Kami Rita climbed Mount Everest for the 22nd time.

Rita works as a Sherpa guide and helps other people safely complete the climb.

Kami broke the record while guiding 13 other people up the summit. The 48 year old says he’s aiming to reach the summit 25 times.

Climbing runs in his family. Kami’s Dad was one of the very first guides. His brother has reached Everest’s summit 17 times and almost every male member of his family has climbed the mountain at least once.
