A Nepalese Sherpa climber on Wednesday reached atop Mount Everest for the 23rd time, becoming the only Mountaineer in the world to hold the record for most summits on the world's highest mountain.

With the latest expedition, Kami Rita rose to records as the first person to have climbed Everest peak for the highest number of times.

Kami Rita has already climbed most of the peaks above 8,000 metres including K2, Cho-Oyu, Lhoste and Annapurna among others.

Acharya said Rita, who goes by his first name Kami, reached the top at 7:50am (02:05 GMT) and is now descending to lower camps.

A record 807 climbers reached the summit of Mount Everest previous year, with 563 people climbing from the south and 244 from the northern flank in Tibet.

A Nepalese government official at the mountain's base camp said that Rita and other climbers who made it to the summit on Wednesday were reported to be safe.

Rita says he will try and climb the peak two more times.

The Nepal mountaineer set a record for the most number of times with 23 conquests.

Kami Rita first scaled Everest in 1994 and has been making trips almost every year since.

"I am like a soldier who leaves behind their wives, children, and family to battle for the pride of the country", he told the AP.

"I know Mount Everest very well, having climbed it 22 times, but at the same time I know I may or may not come back", he told the Associated Press news agency last month.

He said the only other two Sherpas near his record reached the summit 21 times, but have since retired.

His father was also a professional Sherpa guide.

There are 41 different teams with a total of 378 climbers who have been permitted to scale Everest during this year's spring climbing season.

Each May, there are usually only a few windows of good weather near the summit during which climbers can attempt to scale the peak.

Every aspiring mountaineer, between April and May, flocks to grab the opportunity of climbing the highest mountain in the world.
