Nepalese climber Nima Jangmu Sherpa, 28, recently reached the top of Mount Kanchenjunga and became the only woman in the world to climb Nepal’s three highest peaks above 8,000 metres in a single season within 25 days.

She has also become the only Nepali woman to stand atop the world’s third highest peak, according to the officials at the Department of Tourism.

Born in the Rolwaling Valley in Dolakha, in the shadow of Mount Chobuje, Nima Jangmu reached the summit of the world’s third highest mountain at around 6:00 a.m. on May 23, Mingma Gyalje Sherpa, Managing Director at Imagine Treks, said.

“Nima Jangmu along with three other climbers scaled the mountain,” he added.

On May 14, Nima Jangmu reached the summit of Mount Everest while guiding her clients to the top of the world. And she climbed Lhotse on April 29.

Before leaving for Taplejung on Sunday, Nima Jangmu said that she was determined to achieve the feat.

“I want to ascend all three highest mountains in a season to show the world that Nepali women are also endowed with courage and determination,” she said.
