Into the wild: Cheetah jumps inside safari vehicle!
Forests are alluring and frightening in equal measure, and this safari video from Africa’s Serengeti National Park proves just that. Instagram user Casey Cooper shared a video on the social media channel, sharing his safari experience in Serengeti, one of Africa’s most famous and loved national parks and wildlife reserves.
Another clip by Casey Cooper, titled Part 2 Cheetah video, the animal is seen lazing on vehicle top, sitting comfortably for a good 20 minutes. Thankfully, it did not get too close to the vehicle passengers or things might’ve taken a turn for the worse. Reportedly, the vehicle had to be revved to make the cheetah get off it.
Yamunotri to soon get a ropeway that will cut travel time from 5 hours to just 5 min
Yamunotri shrine will soon get a ropeway that will cut down your travel time from 5 hours to just 5 minutes.
If reports are to go by, around 3.8 hectares of land will be used for this ambitious project, where construction of the 3.7 km long (aerial distance) ropeway will take place, and which will connect the Yamunotri shrine to Kharsali village. The most interesting part of this project is that the ropeway will reduce travel time to just 5 min from five hours. Construction will likely start this summer, which is scheduled to be completed in two years.
Ladakh creates Guinness world record for high altitude frozen lake marathon
Ladakh has created a history by successfully managing its maiden 21-km trail running event in sub-zero temperature at 13,862 ft high Pangong Tso. With this, it has created a Guinness world record for conducting the world’s highest frozen lake half marathon.
The four-hour long marathon started from Lukung and ended at Maan village recently, and no injury was reported to any of the 75 participants. The aim of this marathon was also to promote sustainable winter tourism in border villages of eastern Ladakh and boost livelihood opportunities for the residents, especially in winters.
