Witnesses claim mountaineers appeared not to have sufficient oxygen to make ascent
Three Indian climbers accused of falsely claiming to have summited Mount Everest in 2016 have been banned by Nepal from mountaineering in the country for six years.
The alleged fake ascent came to light after one of the three, 26-year-old Narender Singh Yadav, was named as a potential recipient of the Tenzing Norgay national adventure award, after which other Indian mountaineers alleged the summit pictures had been faked.
