What’s a better way to see the country than from at the top of it? Climbing mountains is good for keeping things in perspective, both in realizing how small of a world we live in and reflecting on the landscape in front of us. Bosnia and Herzegovina is blossoming with nature. Tumbling mountain ranges, hidden away castles, and ever-expansive forests draw in tourists from all over the world. Roughly 40% of the country is covered in pine, beech, and oak trees, teeming with wildlife. These forests aren’t the only tree-covered ecosystem in Bosnia and Herzegovina; it remains the only country in Europe to have a jungle. It’s called Perućica Rainforest, and some of the trees are over 300 years old. Malo Polje Igman Olympic Jumps: GC4K5A8 Traditional GC58W8A by raumangst Far outside of the capital city at an elevation of about 7,828 ft (2,386 m) is our Geocache of the Week: Top of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Maglić is the tallest mountain in the country. The hike to the summit is roughly 3 miles (4.7 km). Along the trail you can see herds of sheep chewing away at the long brown grass, rock faces peeping out between the patches of it, and a deep blue heart-shaped lake can be seen once you’re at elevation. At the top there’s a flag and below it is the cache.  [Lost place] Olympic bobsleigh track Sarajevo: GC7VD5R Check out all of the Geocaches of the Week on the Geocaching blog.

Perpetrators of the crime would be dealt with firmly,” Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said. He asked two Ministers and senior police officers, including Director-General of Police Kuladhar Saikia to rush to the site and deal with the situation.This is the second subversive strike in a little over a fortnight. The ULFA-I had claimed responsibility for a bomb blast in Guwahati on October 13, in which five people were injured.“This explosion was directed against those opposing the National Register of Citizens update and against those organisations supporting settling of Hindu Bangladeshis in Assam,” the outfit’s military chief Paresh Baruah had said in a statement then. Rajnath anguished In New Delhi, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh expressed deep anguish over the killings, saying strongest possible action would be taken against the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
