All seven people, including a new-born, on board a Fishtail Air helicopter that crashed Bhetini in Nuwakot district on Monday, have been confirmed dead, Nepal Army Brigadier General Tara Bahadur Karki said. The wreckage of the crashed chopper was found at Tucche cliff of Bhetini. The helicopter that took off from Gorkha this afternoon was airlifting the new-born for treatment in Kathmandu with her mother. Captain Ranjan Limbu, Staff Nurse Nisha Tamang, one Laxmi Gurung, Kitman Gurung, of Siddhadhibas, Gorkha, his wife Aagyani, Priti Gurung, 19, and her five-day-old son, have been killed.
A rescue team of NA’s Shreenath Battalion have reached the crash site, Karki said. Earlier, Caan spokesperson Devendra KC said bad weather has been preventing the search operation. The crash site is 5,500ft above the sea level. The 9N-AKA chopper had made last contact with air traffic control tower at 1:00pm.
Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.
Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.
Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
