When Nepal first opened its doors to mountaineers in 1949, mountaineering in Nepal almost immediately became a passionate and adventurous pleasure for climbers. Though attempts to climb mountains began in the early twentieth century, no one could claim victory until 1953, when Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay planted their first foot on the peak of Mt. Everest. Sherpas are a Nepalese ethnic group known for their climbing abilities as well as their strength and willpower at high elevations. Tourism provides alternate hobbies and sources of revenue for Sherpas. The people use their homes as overnight shelters for mountain-climbing expeditions, and they also work as cooks, porters, and guides. Overall, tourist-related professions are common in the Sherpa economy. We've compiled a list of the top ten people who have climbed Everest the most times.
