KATMANDU, Nepal — A Nepalese woman mountaineer has been recognized by Guinness World Records for climbing Mount Everest twice in the same climbing season.

Nepal’s Tourism Minister Posta Bahadur Bogati handed over the certificate issued by Guinness World Records to 29-year-old Chhurim who scaled the 8,850-meter summit on May 12, 2012, and again a week later on May 19.

Chhurim, who like most Nepalese Sherpas use only one name, said she plans to climb other high peaks in the future.

Everest has been climbed by nearly 4,000 climbers but women climbers make only a small portion of that number, according to the Nepal Mountaineering Association.
