A man from Nepal did not climb Mount Everest because he had a bad dream. Kami Rita, 51, has climbed Everest 25 times. This is a record. He was trying to climb it a 26th time. He said: "I had a really bad dream. The gods were telling me not to go." Mr Rita did not say anything about what was in his dream.
Mr Rita is a hero in Nepal. His nickname is Snow Leopard. He first climbed Everest in 1994. He will try again in 2022. He said: "I will go back again next year to complete my dream." People in Nepal believe Everest is a goddess. They pray before they climb it. This shows they respect the mountain.
