Kathmandu, May 11: A Nepalese Sherpa guide has broken his own record for most climbs of Mount Everest by scaling the world's tallest peak for the 21st time, an official says.

Apa reached the 29,035-foot (8,850-meter) summit Wednesday. He is leading an environmental expedition that plans to carry down tons of garbage left behind by past climbers.

Apa uses only one name, as many in the Himalayas' Sherpa community do.

A government mountaineering official stationed at the base camp, Tilak Pandey, says favorable weather allowed Apa to reach the summit Wednesday morning along with a few other climbers.  AP
