Kathmandu: Five Indians apart from amputee climber Arunima Sinha on Tuesday conquered Mount Everest.
The trekkers Anita Devi, Susen Mahato, Lovraj Singh Dharamshaktu, Kanta Devi and Ramala reached the top of the world, said a release by the Asian Trekking Pvt Ltd.
Loveraj (39) from Uttarkhand, an assistant commandant with the Border Security Force, is the first Indian to scale the world`s highest peak five times in a row. He had reached the summit in June last year.
