Everest Climber breaks new record



The most successful climber on Mount Everest broke another record when she reached the top of the mountain for the ninth time

The climber is Lhakpa Sherpa. She is a 44-year-old single mother who lives in the US with her three children. She was born in Nepal and has been climbing for many years.

Sherpa led some 50 people up the mountain as she completed her last climb on May 16. This broke her own record for most climbs on Mount Everest by a woman. Her first successful attempt came in 2000, and she completed her eighth climb in the spring.

<p>  She told the Associated Press that the Ninth ascent was her heaviest so far. She said strong winds and snow had forced the group to wait a few days before making their last climb up. </p>
<p>  One member of the group was Sherpa's brother, Mingma, who runs a mountaineering firm in Nepal. "Only two of our <strong> customers </strong> failed, but most of them made it to the top and were happy," Sherpa said. </p><div><script async src=

Lhakpa Sherpa says she hopes her rises will inspire women everywhere to grab their own dreams. "If an uneducated woman who is a single mother can climb Everest nine times, any woman can achieve her dreams."

Sherpa never got the chance to get a full education. She started working as an assistant to Everest mountaineers at an early age. She now works as a dishwasher at a Whole Foods market in West Hartford, Connecticut.

<p>  In an interview last month with <em> espnW </em> Sherpa said she never really prepared herself for her Everest climbs. </p>
<p>  "My training is here … washing dishes, taking out <strong> garbage </strong> .I want a hard job," she said. She said the publication said that many climbers see Everest not only as a physical exam, but also as a spiritual experience. </p><div><script async src=

"We believe that Everest is a god," she said. "Earth and Mother, Mount Everest and I have a connection, I feel it when snow blows to the top of the mountain."

Sherpa told The Associated Press she feels healthy and fit enough to be able to mount in the next few years. "People who are 70 years old are still climbing Everest, I'm nowhere," she said. She plans to climb the mountain again next year.
