According to Guinness World Records, she is the first woman to climb the world’s highest mountain twice in the same season. Chhurim from Solukhumbu had kissed the 8,848-meter summit on May 12, 2012 and again on May 19, 2012.

Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation handed over the Guinness World Records certificate to the 29-year-old mountaineer in the midst of a program held in Kathmandu on February 25.

More than 4,000 mountaineers have reached the summit of Mt Everest since the first success in 1953. But only a few of them are women.
