Why Tourists are Banned from Climbing the Ancient Mayan Pyramid?

The ancient Mayan pyramid comes under world heritage. Since 2008, tourists have been prohibited from climbing the pyramid to save it from damage. Also, in 2006, a US woman died after falling from it.

According to the law of Mexico[1], any such action, which can lead to the damage of monuments, may attract a fine of $2500 or more. The amount of fine depends upon the severity of the damage done. In this case, luckily no damage was done to the Mayan pyramid also known as the El Castillo temple.
