Rita reached the summit with other climbers Wednesday morning and all of them were reported to be safe, said Gyanendra Shrestha, a Nepalese government official at the mountain's base camp.
"It is my profession, but at the time I am setting a new world record for Nepal too", the 49-year-old the Associated Press last month before heading to the mountain.
Kami says he will try and climb the peak two more times.
Rita was at Everest's base camp in 2015 when an avalanche swept through, killing 19 people.
Nepali Mountaineer Kami Rita Sherpa became the first person ever to climb Mount Everest - highest summit on Earth - for a record 23 times on Tuesday.
"It would be impossible for many foreign climbers to summit mountains without the help of a Sherpa", said Ang Tshering Sherpa, former president of the Nepal Mountaineering Association. After that tragedy, he came under intense family pressure to quit mountaineering altogether, but in the end decided against it.
"I am still strong and want to climb Sagarmatha 25 times", Kami had told Reuters news agency before leaving for the mountain in March referring to the Nepali name for Everest.
"I am like a soldier who leaves behind their wives, children, and family to battle for the pride of the country", he told the AP.
Rita is working to make sure other Sherpa guides get the recognition they are due.
His latest ascent took him two summits clear of two fellow Sherpas, who have successfully climbed the peak 21 times, hiking officials said.
Perhaps most important, it is Sherpas who each year fix ropes and ladders over crevasses and icefalls that make things safer for the hundreds of climbers who will follow them.
"However, when these climbers reach the summit, only their names are highlighted and nothing mentioned about the hard work done by the Sherpas", Rita said last month.
Sherpa, 49, reached the summit Wednesday morning, breaking his own record that he set previous year, his expedition company confirmed.
Nepal has issued a record 378 permits costing United States dollars 11,000 each to mountaineers for this year's spring climbing season, sparking fears of overcrowding if the weather cuts down the number of climbing days. There are an equal number of Nepalese guides helping them to get to the summit.
She said about 30 other climbers were on the way to the summit and were expected to top the peak on Wednesday or Thursday, when the weather window is expected to remain open.
