The Swiss city might be no Interlaken or St. Moritz, but it is so beautiful that it’ll win your heart. Zermatt is the village city at the base of the Matterhorn, which is the highest peak in the Swiss Alps. Apart from hiking and skiing, the 365-day snow-clad destination also has a fantastic nightlife. The local food and drinks will have you hooked, but it is the marvellous view of the Matterhorn that will take your breath away. In fact, climbing to the topmost base, then skiing or snowboarding down is one of the most adventurous things you’ll do in your lifetime. The mountain fun-park, open-air theatre, and the community will make this family vacation your best yet! A visit to the Matterhorn Glacier, Interlaken and St. Moritz are also extra options.

# Hnappavellir and Jökulsárlón

The Icelandic city of Hnappavellir is situated just below the highest peak of the country and is a mecca for rock climbers. The vertical cliffs and the Vatnajokull National Park will make this trip the most thrilling experience of your lifetime. It is close to the beautiful Jökulsárlón lake, which is the crown jewel of Iceland. With some stunning glaciers and icebergs, it is a sight to behold! You can spend a day at the lake, look around, or take a trip to the nearby national park. The glacier lagoon and the wildlife will make this trip an experience like never before. You can also visit the Diamond beach, which is a black sand beach with icebergs. The icebergs shine like diamonds when the sun strikes them, giving you one of the best sights you can ever witness. With temperatures ranging from -2º Celsius to 8º Celsius, this is one of the best options for cryophiles this summer.

It is a stunning masterpiece combining impressive pieces of art carved from crystal clear ice, and the Scandinavian culture. Some lipsmacking food and the fact that you can stay in a hotel made entirely of ice, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You can also go dogsledding, witness the Northern lights, and go on an escapade to see the mythical Aurora (dancing lights). The Secret Char Lake, Abisko National Park and Sweden’s highest mountain Kebnekaise will give you the most breath taking views and pictures. In fact, you will fall in love with the Swedish Lapland if you are a hiker.

Yes, just imagine looking at the beautiful light effect right in front of your eyes, tucked in your luxury bed. For a more traditional experience, you can even book a log cabin. There are snow igloos too and this Nordic experience is like no other. The cuisine is amazing too, but the outdoor activities like skiing and reindeer rides will make this adventure even more worthwhile. You can spot several arctic animals as well as indulge in ice fishing in the village city. Cool, right? Cold, actually!

It also approved a penalty of Rs 3050 crore that is to be paid by Vodafone Idea and Airtel. Why? As per reports, the two telecom giants, Vodafone Idea and Airtel, had failed to comply with the interconnection agreement with Reliance Jio. Due to this, Jio users were unable to make calls to people with Vodafone Idea or Airtel networks. That led to a massive loss and Jio filed a complaint.

In June itself, The Digital Communications Commission had imposed a penalty on Vodafone Idea and Airtel, according to reports. However, it had asked the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to review its decision. in fact, he Commission also asked for an approval for the penalty amount of Rs 3050 crore to be given to Jio. After TRAI gave its go ahead, the DCC announced the verdict on July 25. And eve though all looks fine, the judgement has now gone to the Department of Telecom. Post the final approval, Vodafone Idea and Airtel will have to pay the penalty to Jio, according to reports.

This is surely going to be a major win for Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio. What is your take on this development? Share with us your thoughts in the comments section below! Also stay tuned to CineBlitz for more Tech related stories right here.
