Nepal has banned three Indian climbers for six years for faking their walk to the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest, in 2016.
The two climbers, Narender Singh Yadav and Seema Rani Goswami and their team leader had claimed that they had reached to the top of the mountain.
However, after the winning of India’s prestigious Tenzing Norgay Adventure Award by Yadav, last year. The Indian media and other mountaineers revealed that the photographic evidence of 2016 ascent is false and altered.
Moreover, the award has been taken back from Yadav and their Everest summit certificates have been annulled by Nepal.
Tara Nath Adhikari, Nepal’s tourism ministry spokesman, after carrying out investigations and inquiries, announced that the two climbers never climbed the mountain.
