Bad dream stops climber's record Everest climb 

 

Bad dream stopped Everest guide from climbing peak 26th time - ABC News

 

 

A man decided not to climb Mount Everest because he had a bad dream from the "Mountain Goddess". The man is a 51-year-old Nepalese Sherpa called Kami Rita. He is not any ordinary mountain climber. He is already the record holder for climbing Mount Everest the most times. He climbed the world's highest peak for a record 25th time earlier this month. 

 

He told reporters: "I was making my 26th attempt and had reached Camp Three, but the weather turned bad and I had a really bad dream. The gods were telling me not to go and because I really believe in God, I decided to return." He added: "I take orders from goddesses". Mr Rita did not give any more details about what was in his dream.

 

Kami Rita is a climbing legend and a hero in the Himalayan nation of Nepal. He has the nickname Snow Leopard because of his decades of experiences in climbing Everest and other mountains. He first scaled Everest in 1994 and has done the climb nearly every year since then. 

 

He said he would make another attempt at the climb in 2022, saying: "I felt the Goddess did not want me to go up again this year. After receiving the signals, I returned to Kathmandu. I will go back again next year to complete my dream." The Sherpa people believe Everest is a goddess. They take part in a religious ceremony to pay their respects to the mountain and to have good luck before starting a climb.
