During the height of controversy Greg Mortenson admitted to lying about details of his first journey which led to his revelation that Pakistan needed schools but claimed he still stayed in the village of Korphe. He gave a new updated story which he claimed was the truth.
However, according to Outside Magazine and a Pakistani-American tour guide with Google Earth, Mortenson is lying again. Mortenson claimed to cross over the Biaho River on a bridge between Korofong and Askole. The tour guide who is well familiar with the area used Google Earth imagery to point out that there is no bridge between those two villages.
