Climate change likely to make Everest even riskier

ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW DELHI, April 23: Climbing to the roof of the world is becoming less predictable and possibly more dangerous, scientists say, as climate change brings warmer temperatures that may eat through the ice and snow on Mount Everest.

Nepal was left reeling when a sudden ice avalanche slammed down onto a group of Sherpa guides on Friday and killed 16 in the deadliest single disaster on Everest. While it is impossible to link any single event to long-term changes in the global climate, scientists say the future will likely hold more such dangers in high-altitude regions. [More]

  Pack your travel essentials  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
The happiest traveler is the one who gets much of his/her travel essentials fitted in a manageable portable bag pack. If the trip is just a day long or overnight, it’s usually easier to bag pack stuffs since one doesn’t need much of them. But if you’re traveling for a longer duration, you’re likely to incorporate more stuff in your bag pack. But trying to pick up everything in your bag might make it much heavy and difficult to move about during the travel.
The Week lists down some travel essentials that every traveler should have and ways to pack them into a lighter backpack.

Quick dry shirt and pants


You should avoid carrying clothes that weigh heavy or soak up much water when it gets wet. Jeans are heavier to wear and carry, and cotton pants and shirts take up a lot of time to dry. So light pants, leggings, and quick-dry shirts are the best travel wears. And since they can be easily washed and dried overnight, you won’t need to carry too many clothes. Plus, it’s always good to wear dark clothes during travel since they tend to get or look less dirty.
