KATHMANDU: Two 21-year-old Indian students from Dehrahdun became the first twins to climb the Mount Everest on Sunday.
Nunshi and Tashi Malik were among the 135 people to reach the summit of the world's highest peak at 8,848-metre above sea level along with their two sherpas who are also twins, Gyanendra Shrestha, an official said.
The two sisters had been staying on mountains in the region to acclimatize to the atmosphere since March. The 11-member joint Indian and Nepal army expedition also reached the summit on Sunday.
