A man from Nepal did not climb Mount Everest because he had a bad dream. Kami Rita, 51, is not an ordinary mountain climber. He is the record holder for climbing Mount Everest the most times. He has climbed the world's highest peak a record 25 times. He told reporters: "I was making my 26th attempt...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 his dream.

Kami Rita is a Sherpa and a legend and hero in Nepal. He has the nickname Snow Leopard because of his experiences of climbing Everest. He first climbed it in 1994. He has climbed it nearly every year since then. He will try again in 2022. He said: "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 before they climb it.
