    Kami Rita, who has earned the nickname “The Everest Man,” belongs to the ethnic community of the Sherpa. In past interviews, he stated that he had never set out to break records but has been “just working” all these years.

    Kami Rita was born on January 2nd, 1972; he developed his passion for climbing from a young age and has been scaling mountains for over two decades. A native of Thame village in Solukhumbu, Nepal, he works as a senior guide at 14 Peaks Expedition. He has dedicated his life to mountaineering, becoming identical to the world’s highest peaks.

    Last year, Kami Rita climbed Everest twice, reclaiming his record after another guide, Pasang Dawa Sherpa, matched his record of ascents. He stood at the top of the world for the 28th time in the spring last year.
