A NEPALI woman scaled Mount Everest for the 10th time on Thursday, breaking her own record for the most summits of the world’s highest mountain by a female climber, her hiking company said. Lhakpa Sherpa, 48, last climbed the 8 848.86m mountain in 2018. Meanwhile, Indian climber Baljeet Kaul climbed her second 8 000m mountain on Thursday morning in two weeks. Mount Kanchenjunga, pictured above from Gangtok in the Indian state of Sikkim, is the world’s third-highest peak. Kaul summited Kanchenjunga with her guide Mingma Sherpa, according to the Himalayan Times Daily. She also climbed Mount Annapurna I in the Gandaki mountain range on April 28.
