TV1 launches Jan 21st

Maharaja's newest channel launches on Jan 21st at 5:04pm. Yet another iteration MTV, which has undergone quite a few in it's lifetime. TV1 is supposed to a English/Sinhala hybrid channel which is to be available on pay networks & fta via UHF.

The programming on this channel is not clear as yet however as per yesterday's press conference, this isn't going to a strictly youth oriented channel. At present MTV is in disarray with programming without any sense of direction.

Rumours suggest that this channel is to target the viewership of Hiru TV by making it more contemporary. 

The fate of MTV indicates clearly the plight of English TV channels in Sri Lanka which are struggling to survive the cable tv onslaught. If a English channel is to survive, they should either carry current programming or none at all.

Only Art TV which steers clear of pay service providers telecasting CNN is barely holding on. The fate of ETV is still unclear. Which by the way begs the question, what exactly is ETV telecasting? Please let us know people. This latest iteration TV1 kicks off Jan 21st just might survive due to  it's hybrid nature.

PEO TV GO Android application released on Android yesterday. - www.mobitel.lk/peo-tv-go
Hope the will release the iOS app soon.

Also SLT launched the FILMHALL too. For a surprisingly low price as Rs.199 for a whole month full of movies. They will launch the new system on PEOTV Platform too as they promised.
This means Dialog failed again with their 7th circuit channel. Who will watch the same movie repeatedly 3 days for Rs.399?

This happened in the HD platform too. Dialog was hurry to launch the HD service. They launched the HD package with 4 HD channels for Rs.680.
Then SLT launched their HD package in PEOTV. 8 HD channels for just Rs.200! Including the HD channel of HBO Hits, HBO Signature and HBO Family.

SLT seems on the right path now.

Why do most adventure enthusiasts love Trekking in Nepal?
Trekking In Nepal…with Encounters Nepal Dot Com…

These boots were made for walking…ONE OF DAYS THESE BOOTS will walk you into the Himalayas for the experience of a lifetime…

Trekking in Nepal is a delightful feast of nature in its most natural origins in this small but amazing country of Nepal. Encounters Nepal takes you into some of the most spectacular wilderness of Nepal’s vast Himalayas, across some of the most rugged terrain where the beauty is raw, punishing and taxes your physical abilities to the limit…but the rewards are so immense, it leaves you with emotional memories that last not only for a lifetime, but passed down to the generations to come. Our adventures are boundless and not only fenced into Nepal but cuts across the borders into the mountains of Tibet, India and Bhutan as well, irrespective of the kind of trip you choose in Nepal. Your holidays in Nepal with us is more than just a brief visit to stay somewhere; it is a real connection with the local folks, the unique countryside, the distinctive ancient cultures, delectable Nepali cuisine, the sublime environment and the rare specie of flora and fauna are extraordinary in this part of the world…

A typical trek-day starts around 6 a.m. with a cup of tea/coffee. After packing your duffel bag and daypack, breakfast is served piping hot amidst the sweet chirping of birds that are always happy with your presence. The day's trek starts around 7.30 a.m. Porters carry all your luggage and equipment. All you need to carry in your daypack are personal items like a water bottle, rain/wind jacket, camera and any other small items you may need on the trail.

On beaten trails or virgin tracks, Nepal is a trekker's haven. The steady beat of foot travel is a great way to discover and make meaningful contact with the country. Trekking usually consists of a series of ascents and descents walking 5 to 7 hours (9 to 14 km per day on average with a guide, cook and porters and on some occasion’s pack animals.

The objective of trekking in Nepal is not just a particular destination, but the odyssey and experiences itself. You travel at a pace that suits your body best, observing nature, rural communities, and spectacular mountain panoramas, some of which are the best on the planet. You also stop over to have a cosy chat with the local folks and learn about their lifestyles on these beautiful but tough mountains, of which some are the highest in the world.

Trekking in Nepal with Encounters Nepal is an experience that leads you into areas most other trek companies would overlook; we go the mile in order to show you some of the most stunning sights beheld on these astonishing mountains that gives you a sense of gratification, the true feelings of adventure in an untamed wilderness that teaches you about life in ways that are more practical than you would experience in the concrete jungles of mega cities.

Nepal Annapurna Base Camp Trek is among the most popular walking tour in the Himalayan world.
The ranges of Annapurna base camp trek is one of the most popular walking tour in the Himalayan world. Trail literally brings you face to face with an eight thousand highest Peak– for a moderate-difficult trek; this is one of best incredible! The fascinating Annapurna ranges massif includes the world’s tenth highest peak in Himalaya. Annapurna (8,091 m) I hold a fatal attraction for mountaineers of world. This mountain has the highest fatality ratio among the eight thou sanders peak. This formidable mountain aura apart, its base camp (ABC) trek holds several treasures for the mountain lover world.
Annapurna Mountain views that leave you spellbound
The Annapurna mountain range whets your appetite for mountain views front-right from Pokhara City. This is first even before you start the trek. At Ghandruk village, you see distinct views of Machapuchare(6993m) Annapurna South (7219m) and Hiunchuli (6441m). Views of different peaks of the world Annapurna massif and Machapuchare stay with you all the way till Sinuwa Hill. The tip of Holy Machapuchare teases you at Dovan (2600m). As you burst out of the bamboo forest past Himalaya and Deurali pass, Machapuchare appears again in its full glory. Machapuchare, the ‘fish tailed mountain’, in Nepalese is revered by the Nepalese people for its exquisite beauty. Legendry believed to be one of the homes of Hindi Lord (Shiva). This holy mountian has never been officially summitted! As you touch down the Machapuchare base camp, in addition to Machapuchare, you can see massif Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Gangapurna and Hiunchuli Peak up close. The Annapurna Base Camp is a small cluster of six-seven lodges opposite the ridge of Annapurna glacier. As you look around up from the edge of the glacier, you come face to face with the Annapurna massif ranges. Annapurna South, I, III and Gangapurna, with Gandharvachuli and Machapuchare are all there to meet your unleash gaze when your eyes rest upon them. Trekking into the forests of the Annapurna Conservation Area The trail takes you through a variety of vegetation while trekking from Ghandruk village to Chhomrong you are surrounded by Nepal's national flower (rhododendron), fern and wild bamboo. Once you cross Sinuwa Hill to enter the narrow valley of Annapurna sanctuary, the forest becomes densely. Tallest oak trees become prominent here. As you move further up towards Deurali pass, the thick forests give way to tall grasses. Around this area, you will find trees of thick bark called Daphne. This is used by local people to make paper. These trees are commonly found around estern part of nepal and india border as well. Closer to Machapuchare base camp (3700m), the terrain turns into Alpine. You see the patches of grass amidst boulders. There are also flowering plants lining the trail at this section too.
The Annapurna base camp trail has 3 sections through forest that is so dense that sometime sunlight barely seeps through. The first one starts right after the villages around Chomrung and extends till New Bridge. On the trail from Sinuwa, you will hear the Modi River roaring past right next to you. But the trees around are so densely that you can’t really see the river flow. The third stretch is after Sinuwa and goes all the way to Dovan via Bamboo. The beauty of this trek is that you walk through these forests twice.
The Annapurna Base Camp Trek and region is nestled in the 7,629 sq km Annapurna Conservation Area and home to 1,228 species of flowering plants, more than 100 mammals, 474 birds, 33 reptiles with 22 amphibians. If you’re lucky you might spot an exotic bird or even called marmot.
