Hong Kong’s Tsang Yin-hung breaks the record for fastest ascent of Everest.

Hong Kong mountaineer Tsang Yin-hung has recorded the world's fastest ascent of Everest by a woman with a time of just under 26 hours.

Tsang, 44, scaled the 8,848.86-m mountain in a record time of 25 hours and 50 minutes, Everest base camp's government liaison officer Gyanendra Shrestha said.

But Tsang still needs to present her claim to officials from Guinness World Records to receive certification of her feat. The Nepal government certifies that climbers have reached the summit but does not issue certifications for records.

The fastest woman to conquer Everest had been Nepali Phunjo Jhangmu Lama when she completed the climb in 39 hours 6 minutes.

In 2017, Tsang became the first Hong Kong woman to reach the top. It was her third attempt at scaling the Himalayan peak.
