Number of times Mr Kami Rita, 48, a professional guide, has reached the Everest summit.

The problems occurred during what is being described as the third "summit wave" of climbers pushing towards the summit in this pre-monsoon season, after the ropes were fixed from both the Nepalese and Tibetan sides of the mountain. Officials said Kami Rita reached the summit on Wednesday with a team of foreign climbers, while Lakpa Sherpa reached the peak from the Chinese side.

Sherpas are famous for guiding mountaineering expedition and a lot of them come from Solukhumbu district, home to the Everest, or nearby mountainous districts.
