Apa Sherpa Retires

Apa Sherpa, Guinness World Record holder of the most summits of Mount Everest, has announced he will not climb the world's tallest peak again. He has been quoted that he will not climb above base camp in future visits to the mountain.

Apa Sherpa first summited in 1990 and since then has climbed 21 times. The most recent summit was earlier this year.

The 51-year-old mountaineer has been involved in the Eco Everest Expedition since the beginning of the campaign. Mount Everest has become increasingly filled with trash left behind by climbers. The Eco Everest Expedition works to clean the polluted mountain.

Apa Sherpa has broken his own record of climbing Everest several times in the past and we can expect his name to remain in the record books for some time.
