Two Indian climbers have been banned from Mount Everest for lying to have accented the summit.
As being reported the two climbers Narender Singh Yadav and Seema Rani Goswami were the recipients of certificates from the Nepal tourist board in 2016, which stated that they had reached the peak of the world’s tallest mountain.
The tourist board has banned the pair and their team leader from mountaineering in Nepal for six years and fined them around £500.
However, veteran climbers of the imposing mountain raised concerns over photos that were submitted to back up their alleged feat, which led to a subsequent investigation.
The probe into the photos become the reason to verify their false claims.
The submitted photos featured a lack of mountains in the reflection of a man’s sunglasses and drooping flags that were shown in places that climbers said are known for their harsh winds.
A spokesman for Nepal’s tourism ministry said they had concluded that the pair ‘never reached the summit’, adding: “They couldn’t produce any evidence of their ascent to the peak.
“They even failed to submit reliable photos of them at the summit.”
