The milestone in virtual mountaineering saw four Nepalese guides become the first men in the world to document the whole south route to the summit of Everest using a special surround-view rig. A backpack strapped to the climbers carried the camera system consisting of a cube of six GoPro camera set to record pictures and video at regular intervals. Experienced mountain climbers Lakpa Sherpa, Pemba Rinji Sherpa, Kusang Sherpa and Ang Kaji Sherpa, completed the trek to the summit at 8848 meters of altitiude.

    SIMPLE LIFE HACKS FOR EVERY DAY These life hacks and tricks are gonna be unexpectedly helpful in numerous life situations. If you often use eyewear you'll like these hacks. If your glasses often fogging up, I advise you to rub some plain soap into the glasses and then wipe it up with a napkin as usual. When your eyeglasses keep slipping down, take two rubber bands, tie them round the temples of the glasses. That's it, no more slipping down! If you're just trying to pick up a new pair of glasses or buying eyewear for the first time, don't forget to take the table test. Simply put the eyeglasses right on the table and then carefully look at the glasses' temple tips, whether they both reach the table surface or not. If not, it means the temple tips are of different length! It may cause a lot of discomfort while wearing them. In case you have high myopia of −6.00 diopters or more and accidentally lost your eyewear on the working desk. Grab your phone, turn on the camera and zoom in on the table surface until you see your glasses. Another nasty problem every four-eyed probably faced - scratches on the lenses. Put some toothpaste on the lens and rub it in. Did you know how handy plastic bags can be? You can use them as a smartphone case to protect your gadget from the damp and sand when you take it to the beach with you. You can cook an awesome puffy omelet using plastic bag as well!

    Just 10 Days to Go! Tourists Can Now Experience Shimla Snow in Glass Roof Trains

    For the first time, tourists in Shimla will be able to experience snow and rainfall in these glass-enclosed coaches.

    Kalka: The railways will run a vistadome coach on the narrow gauge in the Kalka-Shimla route in the next ten days and it is likely to cost more than Rs 500 per seat, catering to mostly foreign tourists.

    For the first time, tourists in Shimla will be able to experience snow and rainfall in these glass-enclosed coaches. The only such coach in a narrow gauge network exists in the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR).

    Such coaches, with transparent roofs to enjoy the scenic beauty outside, are currently run in broad gauge networks between Mumbai-Goa and Vishakapatnam to Araku Valley in Andhra Pradesh. There is also a proposal to run vistadome coaches in Jammu and Kashmir, but security issues have kept the plans on hold, sources said.

    The vistadome coach, which will run on the 95.5 km route, has been built locally in 100 days at a cost of around Rs 10 lakh. Currently, the fare of the Shivalik Deluxe Express which runs on the route is Rs 425 and the cheapest costs Rs 25.


    An official said the fare of the vistadome coach, which is the first train on the route to have air-conditioning, is likely to be more than Rs 500.

    "This coach is an old second-class coach which has been refurbished, seats have been upgraded and we have installed glasses all around so that the tourist can sit in the train and enjoy the beauty of the area without even stepping out.

    "It has a capacity of 36 seats, with no toilets or catering presently," said Divisional Railway Manager, Ambala, DC Sharma, adding the next coach was expected to have toilets.

    Sharma said as compared to the other vistadome coaches on the broad gauge routes, the one on the Kalka -Shimla route was a basic one. "However, the scenic beauty is incomparable and we plan to open this for the public in the next 10 days ," he said.

    Depending on the success of these coaches, Sharma said more such glass-enclosed coaches would be put into service. "There was a huge demand from foreign tourists and even tour operators to have such a coach and this is primarily for them. This is an unique experience. It's likely to cost more than Rs 500," a senior official said.

    The train with such a coach currently will run at a speed of 25 km/hr and but a trial run on December 1 is going to ramp it to up to 35 kmph.

    Efforts are on to increase the speed of the train from 25 kmph to 35 kmph and later to 50 kmph on the Shimla-Kalka narrow gauge track, said Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, who met Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur here today.
    This would reduce the travel time by one hour when the speed was increased to 35 kmph and two-and-a-half-hour if the speed was increased to 50 kmph, he maintained.

    The Railways will run a vistadome coach with transparent roof and ultra-modern facilities on the route in 10 days and it is likely to cost more than Rs 500 per seat, catering to mostly foreign tourists.
    A trial run of coach with passengers on board was successful, said Station Superintendent Prince Sethi, adding that more coaches would be attached to the train.

    The 114-year-old Shimla-Kalka train would be the first narrow gauge train to have vistadome (transparent) coach. The passengers and tourists enjoyed the ride and natural beauty as the train passed through hilly terrain.So far, toilet is not attached with the coach but it would be done soon and efforts were on to reduce the travel time which was about five-and-a-half hours to cover 96 km.

    The coach, costing Rs 10-lakh, is made of glass and even the roof and doors are transparent. The 36-seater coach, with wooden interiors and cushions for comfort, is fully air-conditioned and steel railings have been erected along the doors. During his last visit to Shimla, Goyal had directed that such coach be manufactured for the narrow gauge rail line. The timing, fare and number of coaches to be attached with the train are yet to be decided and official sources hinted that fare could be increased.
