Kami Rita Sherpa to climb Everest for few more years

2022 Jun 21, 11:03, Kathmandu

Nepali climber Kami Rita Sherpa, who has climbed Mount Everest 26 times, says that he won’t stop climbing for one or two more years.

 In a conversation with NepalNews, he talks about the need to go for a climbing expedition with a team that he has already signed an agreement with.

Sherpa, who has been climbing Everest since 1994, was the first lucky climber to reach the summit this spring for rope fixing.

Sherpa has been doing similar work in the past years and says that fixing the rope is very risky.

He says that even though the climbers have set a world record by risking their lives, the government of Nepal has not appreciated it properly. He talks about how the Ministry of Tourism wrote a letter to the Ministry of Home Affairs to allow the use of the VI Lounge for artists, but has remained silent about the convenience of climbers.

“Although the government collects tens of millions of rupees annually from mountaineering, not even a small percentage of that amount is used for the benefit of climbers,” shares Sherpa.

Although he has set a number of world records for the past few years, he does not encourage his children to take climbing as their profession.

Sherpa is also active in social services. He gave jackets and educational materials to the school children of Thame village and this time he is distributing jackets to Students of Pangboche.

He is also interested in preserving and preserving the Sherpa culture and has participated in the Sherpa dance called Shebru dance competition representing his birthplace. He is also interested in playing the local instrument tungana.

Sherpa has climbed Everest for the 26th time on May 7 and climbed the mountain 39 times above 8,000 meters.
