The previous record for fastest female climber was held by Phunjo Jhangmu Lama, from Nepal, who scaled the mountain in 39 hours and 6 minutes, the New York Post reported.
“I just feel kind of relief and happy because I am not looking for breaking a record,” Tsang said after her climb. “I feel relieved because I can prove my work to my friends, to my students.”
Tsang stopped only twice along the way so she could change clothes. Her climb was also not hindered by other climbers on some of the highest trails.
