Ad's to be reduced on Indian feeds of channels

Those of you who are sick of the advertisements carried on the Indian feeds of International channels over all  the pay television operators in Sri Lanka can rejoice at a recent ruling that has placed an ad cap on channels commencing next month.

As per the new regulations, advertisements on Indian feeds of channels will not 20 min per hour for news channels and 16 min for GEC's (General Entertainment Channels) from July 1st 2013.

The regulations further state that from October 1st 2013 advertisements for GEC's & news channels cannot exceed 12 min per hour.

This only applies for Indian feeds of channels being received into Sri Lanka, most of the other feeds that originate outside Indian such as those from Singapore are more or less commercial free for the most part.

I have great pleasure in introducing myself, Jaya Gurung, a freelance trekking guide in Nepal. I became involved in trekking in 1998, when I was a porter for two years. I then completed a guides trekking course through the Minister of Tourism in 2000 and followed this up with high altitude mountain sickness training. Since completing my trekking course I have gained a vast amount of experience with trekking companies. I am fluent in English and I also speak a little French. This experience has allowed me to become familiar with various different Nepalese trekking environments, particularly, Annapurna, Everest, Langtang, Helambu, Kanchenjunga, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Upper Mustang, Upper and Lower Dolpo. I can also lead treks to remote and less-touristy areas.

Langtang Region

This trek will take you into some of the wildest and most scenic areas of Nepal from the fertile rice basins of Trisuli to the dense forests of rhododendron and conifer on the higher slopes, the high alpine Yak pastures, glaciers and moraines around Kyangin Gompa. The remote holy lakes at Gosainkunda along the route we experience the whole range of Himalayan topography.

The area, lies in the Himalayan National Park and still relatively undisturbed, supports a healthy population of wildlife and there are good chance of seeing various species of wild goat and deer, possibly even better. Bird and botanical life are equally impressive, all set against the backdrop of the magnificent mountains.

Manaslu Trek Itinerary – 14 days

The manaslu trek on od the popular trekking trail in Nepal the trek start from Arughat to wherever the jeeps can reach above Besisahar takes around 14 to 16 days depend on you walking days, but can be done more quickly, or more slowly (better), and with side trips to Tsum Valley, from even continuing to Himalaya Trail. Itineraries are totally up to you, but here is something to get started with.
Day Walking time Altitude Accommodation
1 6h (Drive) KTM -> ArughatMany good lodges here
2 5h Arughat – Soti Khola (or Arket), basic lodges G.H. & ABC G.H.
3 5h Soti Khola – Machha Khola, good lodges here
4 6h Machha Khola – Jagat, good lodge (25 rooms, 50 pax) 1440 Jagat Guest House.
5 6h Jagat – Deng, good lodge (20 rooms, 40 pax)
6 6h Deng – Namrung, reasonable lodges 2560
7 4h Namrung – Shyala, basic lodge (or Lho, reasonable)
8 2h Shyala – Samagaon, good lodges. Optional rest day in Sama – Manaslu Basecamp excursion. 3500
9 4h Sama – Samdo, via Manaslu Basecamp, reasonable lodges in Samdo 3800
10 4h Samdo – Larkye Phedi, good lodge now (60 pax) 4460
11 8h Larkye Phedi – Bimthang, good lodges 3700
12 6h Bimthang – Tilje, good lodges 2300
13 6h Tilje – Sirichaur, good lodges 1150 s.
14 6h (Drive) Sirichaur – Besisahar – KTM

On this itinerary you can save one day of acclimatization on either days 8 or 10. And obviously you can add extra days for rest, or make half days to stay in different villages.

Larkya peak, Panbari, Samdo Himal, Nirekha, Saula, Khayang and other peaks can be climbed.
Do visit Manaslu basecamp and the Manaslu glacier which is incredible up close.
Wonder what Tibet is like? You can gaze into Tibet from the border point which is short trek from Samdo.
Ancient Gompas along the trail. Not big but often frequented by Rinpoches due to the relative accessibility of Nubri Valley.
From Larkya La you can see four glaciers converging above amazing views to Lamjung Himal and the Annapurnas.
It sounds cliché, but Manaslu is an authentic, Nepali trekking experience. It really is like the Annapurna Circuit way back when
