|Canada and South Africa are not the only countries where tourism is closely linked with sport. Ahead of Nepal?s Tourism Year of 2011 Tyler Bozak Jersey , the Himalayan country is hoping to boost tourism and capitalise on the popularity of Everest Base Camp. Trekking is the major activity in the region, and vital for Nepal?s tourism, with adventure sports set to boost visitors in the coming years.
Sherpa at the Olympics
As I write, the 2010 Vancouver Olympics are in full swing. In the Ice Hockey, the hosts Canada have lost their grudge match with the USA; Amy Williams has won a long yearned for gold medal for Britain in Luge Garret Sparks Jersey , and there have been crashes galore on the slopes. Amid all this drama one of the memorable highlights was a moment of camaraderie from the 15km Free Cross Country event.
When participant Danny Silva of Portugal crossed the line in last place, more than ten minutes behind the field, he was greeted with rapturous applause that he wasn?t expecting. He was carried from the line by fellow competitors, the Ethiopian entrant and Dachhiri Sherpa from Nepal. Their smiling faces made one of the pictorial highlights of the games and captured something of the fabled Olympic spirit. For Dachhiri Sherpa, who finished in ninety third spot Jhonas Enroth Jersey , just participating was achievement enough since he admits he?s not much of a skier.
Before taking up the sport, Dachhiri was an endurance runner. In 2002, he won the Himal race, an arduous 23 stage marathon race between Annapurna Base Camp and Everest Base Camp. After that, with the Olympics in mind Peter Holland Jersey , he was asked by his government to take up skiing. At that time, he had never been on skis before.
Although there are mountains galore and plenty of snow in the Himalayas, there are no facilities for skiing, which made it particularly difficult for Dachhiri to train. Instead, the focus of the region is the Everest Base Camp Trek trail that runs from the famous Lukla airport (renamed Hilary Tenzing airport in 2008) to the Base Camp on the side of the world?s highest mountain.
Rather than skiing Brooks Laich Jersey , Nepal is geared up to host trekking and long distance running events such as the Everest Marathon, which the 40 year old Dachhiri used to run regularly. This is the highest marathon in the world, beginning at an altitude of over 5100 metres above sea level, within sight of Everest and its Base Camp.
In the future, Nepal is looking to widen its range of adventure sports. Some companies have made bids to run paragliding flights over Everest Base Camp and sightseeing flights near the mountain. A more outlandish proposition is to have a fixed hot air balloon next to the mountain Joffrey Lupul Jersey , presumably to serve as a viewing platform, although I hope the winds around Mount Everest (8,848 m) will be taken into account.
Ahead of the Nepal Tourism Year 2011, there have even been talks with China about reintroducing the Lhasa to Kathmandu bus service, a mutually beneficial move to restore a route between Tibet and Nepal. Also Milan Michalek Jersey , with boosting tourism in mind, the Adventure Sports Tourism Society plans to schedule popular sporting competitions in Nepal such as Mountain Biking and Triathlon events. As well as promoting the Everest Marathon, the Nepal Association of Tour Operators aims to create spectacles such as a sky diving competition with Everest as the focal point.
Some tourism commentators have expressed a concern that Mount Everest may eventually become little more than a theme park venue in the Himalaya. On the other side of the world, in Disneyland, Florida Mitchell Marner Jersey , the Everest Expedition ride has already put this theory into practise. On the ride, theme park goers can explore an imitation Himalayan landscape complete with prayer flags and Sherpa villages before boarding a rickety train to Everest Base Camp. The ride ascends a 200 foot high replica Mount Everest, where the riders have a startling encounter with an angry yeti before hurtling backwards down the mountain: a very faithful representation of the true Everest experience!
WASHINGTON — The FBI has released 100 pages of heavily censored documents related to its agreement with an unidentified vendor to hack into an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino, California, shooters Auston Matthews Jersey Sale , but it did not identify whom it paid to perform the work or how much it cost.
The records were provided Friday in response to a federal lawsuit filed against the FBI by The Associated Press, Vice Media and Gannett, the parent company of USA Today.
The media organizations sued in September to learn how much the FBI paid and who it hired to break into the phone of Syed Rizwan Farook, who along with his wife killed 14 people at a holiday gathering of county workers in December 2015. The FBI for weeks had maintained that only Apple Inc. could access the information on its phone, which was protected by encryption James Van Riemsdyk Jersey Sale , but ultimately broke or bypassed Apple's digital locks with the help of an unnamed third party.
The FBI, in its records release Friday, censored critical details that would have shown how much the FBI paid, whom it hired and how it opened the phone. The files had been marked "secret" before they were turned over under the lawsuit.
The files make clear that the FBI signed a nondisclosure agreement with the vendor. The records also show that the FBI received at lea.
