Nepal Might Relocate Mount Everest Base Camp.

Nepal is considering transferring Everest Base Camp in order to address environmental concerns. According to the country’s Department of Tourism Director-General Taranath Adhikari, Base Camp’s location faces some risk from the melt of the nearby Khumbu glacier. We have received many constructive suggestions from numerous stakeholders to relocate the team's base camp. No final decisions have been made yet; however, we are seriously considering these suggestions. These suggestions include suggestions from the community, mountaineers, and environmental experts. However, we do not anticipate any major decisions made to Mount Everest in the near future. It will take two to three years for researchers to make a decision, as research activities can only be conducted during spring. Some stud...

Hong Kong Bid Farewell To Jumbo Kingdom, The World’s Largest Floating Restaurant.

At about 7 a.m. on June 14, a dozen tugboats arrived at the Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter's southwest bay to tow away Jumbo Kingdom seafood restaurant in Hong Kong. Locals gathered along the waterfront to give the restaurant its final farewell. Estimating around 260 feet in length, the goliath three-story Jumbo Floating Restaurant was well known for its colossal green and red neon sign perusing "foon ying gwong lam," Chinese for "welcome." In its prime, it was important for the biggest drifting eatery on the planet. For almost 50 years, it was the fundamental boat of Jumbo Kingdom, which likewise incorporated the more seasoned and more modest sister eatery boat Tai Pak (tracing all the way back to 1952), a flatboat for fish tanks, a 130-foot-long kitchen boat and eight little ships to shi...

Glass Bar Danglings Over A Cliff In The State Of Georgia.

Due to its mild ale, you might first need to consume a serving of alcohol before you can even think about heading to the drinking establishment. At Dashbashi Canyon, a 240-meter-long (787 feet) glass pedestrian bridge in the shape of a "diamond" suspended to a "peak" was designed. The transparent, steel and glass structure, which rises to 280 meters—or about 919 feet—and spans across the natural monument, offers panoramic views of its stunning waterfalls and caves. The enormous bridge took around three years to construct, with Georgia's Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili attending its official opening on June 14. The bridge's multi-level bar, located at its highest point, is reportedly the world's largest and tallest hanging structure. The venue has been submitted to the Guinness Wor...

A Female Buddhist Turned One Of Asia’s Most Respected Chefs.

It's a bustling Saturday morning for Jeong Kwan, a South Korean Buddhist priest. After her initial morning reflection practice and breakfast, she keeps an eye on her nursery inside Baekyangsa, a sanctuary at the picturesque Naejangsan National Park, south of Seoul. The air is loaded up with the fragrance of blossoming coriander blossoms. A wild deer snack on the leaves in the nursery. The eggplants and green peppers are developing. The cabbages she established in the colder time of year are stout and fit to be collected. "It is wonderful on the grounds that it has a ton of energy - - it has developed through the virus winter," the priest tells CNN Travel through an interpreter, pulling her palms separated to exhibit the size of the current year's cabbages. THE ACCIDENTAL STAR ...

To Check Into A Great Hotel For A Vacation In Italy, Look At Puglia.

Puglia was long overlooked as a tourist destination, known only for its heel-shaped peninsula and small role in the history of Italian unification. In recent years, however, it has become an increasingly popular vacation spot for Italophiles who seek to explore the country beyond its popular coastal regions of Tuscany and Amalfi.   It’s not difficult to see why. The relatively flat landscape features some of the most gorgeous towns in Italy – from the bleached walls of Ostuni to the quaint domed roofs of Alberobello’s traditional trulli – most of which are packed with knotty medieval streets, gleaming white Baroque churches and bustling markets. Around its lengthy coastlines you’ll find some of Italy’s most pristine beaches, from soft white sand to rocky plunge pools with crysta...
