Islands away 11.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
New Zealand was one of those countries I always dreamt of visiting, and I was ecstatic to pursue my solo backpacking dream in the Land of Mountains, Fjords and Adventure in the autumn season. New Zealand is basically divided into two major islands - the North Island and the South Island. Both have a personality of their own. The North Island is known for its national parks, cosmopolitan cities and volcanic activities. It is more populous and busy in comparison to the South Island. The South Island, on the other hand, is renowned for its glaciers, lakes and mountains. It is also a hub for an array of adventure sports. With less than two weeks to spare, I decided to explore more of the South Island. I took a domestic flight from Auckland to Queenstown. One of the best views of the country can be from your plane as you land at Queenstown Airport. I was left absolutely speechless while flying over the beautiful Southern Alps draped in autumn colours and pristine turquoise-coloured lakes. I just didnt want to ...

Forest dept likely to cut 'hefty' fees for taking cams into the wild 2.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The Forest Department has decided to revise the charges for taking cameras into national parks and wildlife/bird sanctuaries in Karnataka following strong negative feedback from wildlife photographers, just a day after the new rates came into force. "We have received many complaints from people that the new rates are too high. The new rates even led to quarrels between our staff and tourists. So, we have decided to revise them," an official told DH. Just after the new rates came into effect on November 1, many photographers and wildlife conservationists took to social media to vent their anger. Petitions were signed opposing it. In some cases, a simple message like #SafariBeda turned into a campaign. "Bengaluru has the highest number of photographers, especially wildlife photographers. The increase in camera rates will act as a deterrent and send the message that the forest is open only to the niche, the influentials and the children of politicians," said Vedant L, a software professional and wildlife ...

Wildlife tourism in Karnataka is set to get costlier from November 1 onwards as the Forest Department has increased various fees and charges by up to 150%. The department has increased the charges for the wildlife safari, accommodation, parking, entry fees, etc at national parks, wildlife and bird sanctuaries.
