Nepalese Woman Climbs Everest Twice in Two Weeks (VIDEO)

Not content to scale Mount Everest once, a Nepalese woman reached the peak and than repeated the feat a mere week later.

Update, Feb. 26: Because of unclear phrasing, the narration in this video originally implied that Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay's bodies are on Mount Everest. The men did not die on the mountain; the bodies of many others who failed to complete the climb remain there. The narration has been updated.
