The two friends run a Pune-based company called Adventure Pulse together and conduct high-altitude expeditions all the time.
The mountaineers were attempting to scale Everest when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake shook Nepal on April 25, 2015.
Samir and Sauraj were at the Everest base camp when the first quake struck, triggering an avalanche that nearly buried them.
The duo said their survival has been nothing short of a miracle as most tents at lower altitudes were completely destroyed.
They stayed back to assist the Indian Army with rescue and relief operations.
Both started providing first aid to the people and waved out to the helicopters to airlift the ones who had suffered severe back and head injuries and fractures.
Their efforts in rescuing the mountaineers is commendable to say the least.
