Kami Rita Sherpa, 48, stepped atop the peak of the 8,848-meter mountain, the world's highest, at 8.30 a.m., beating the record he shared with fellow guides Apa Sherpa and Phurba Tashi Sherpa, who have both climbed the mountain 21 times and do not have plans to climb it again.
Lakpa Sherpa, 44, the world's most successful female Everest climber, also made her ninth climb to the top of the mountain on Wednesday - breaking her own record set previous year.
"He has set the world record", said Mingma Sherpa, chairman of the Seven Summit Treks company that employs Kami. On Wednesday, he created a new record by climbing Everest for the record 22nd time, The Kathmandu Post reports.
Kami Rita first climbed Everest as a 24-year-old in 1994.
Kami climbed Mt Everest for the 21st time past year. In her early days, she would help climbers by cooking form them and worked as a porter before she trained as a climber.

Air at the top of Everest contains less than a third of the oxygen at sea level.
