Perjalanan Umroh Januari by Saudi Airlines

Nikmati khasiat air panas di kolam pemandian Sariater (Ciater), yang sudah terkenal ke seluruh pelosok Jawa Barat. Tempat favorit untuk bersantai bersama keluarga ini juga merupakan a must visit place bagi siapa pun yang berkunjung ke Kabupaten Subang.
Uniknya, mata air panas Ciater telah berasal dari kawah aktif Gunung Tangkuban Parahu yang letaknya juga tidak terlalu jauh dari objek wisata ini. Selain dialirkan ke pemandian, air panas tersebut mengalir melalui sungai sepanjang 2.000 m yang kemudian telah menjadi dingin dan digunakan untuk kepentingan pengairan lahan persawahan. Konon menurut petani setempat, air ini lebih dapat untuk mempengaruhi mutu panen dibanding air biasa.  
Objek wisata Ciater akan terasa semakin memesona dengan suguhan udara pegunungan yang dingin serta pemandangan perkebunan teh yang luas. Selain suasana setempat yang nyaman,  Anda juga dapat memanfaatkan air di tempat ini untuk terapi kesehatan. Konon kandungan belerangnya ideal untuk dapat menyembuhkan berbagai penyakit seperti kelumpuhan, rematik, gangguan syaraf, tulang, dan berbagai penyakit kulit lainnya bila dilakukan secara teratur.
Objek wisata alam dengan suguhan udara pegunungan yang dingin serta pemandangan perkebunan teh yang luas, semakin menambah nilai pengalaman yang dalam ketika wisatawan berkunjung ke daerah ini.

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
