Kathmandu, May 25: Among those, who have already scaled or are planning to climb world's highest peak Mt Everest, are from Nepal. The reason is simple. They are born and brought up in the foothills of The Himalayas.

Purnima, who is also a photojournalist, first scaled the world's highest peak on May 12, then on May 19, and later on May 25.

Expedition Director at 8K Expeditions Lakpa Sherpa said Purnima's impressive list of 8x8000ers summits over the years showcases her passion and expertise in mountaineering, The Himalayan Times reported.

In a post on X, Lakpa Sherpa said, "Purnima made history this year by becoming the first woman to summit Mount Everest three times in a single season with 8K Expeditions!"

Purnima, a native of Gorkha, has earlier climbed Mount Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Dhaulagiri, Mount K2 and Annapurna and Manaslu.

Can someone break her record? The answer is definitely yes. But for the time being photojournalist from Nepal, Purnima Shrestha has stunned many with her love to climb Mt Everest frequently. (With IANS support)
