Currently located at Manila, do Philippines and, St. Kitts and Nevis passport holders need a transit visa at Doha while heading to Vienna? Any official website?

chattemm :
"You will indeed need a transit visa for a stop over in Doha. The Philippines is not included in the list of countries that can apply for their transit visa at the airport, so it would be advisable for you and the St Kitts and Nevis passport holder to get one before you start on your trip. You can inquire at the Qatar embassy in the Philippines for more information."

I can't find the distance the trails are on Ben Nevis and these distances are needed for a school project. I need the distance to the top. I've already read this from wikipedia, but thanks anyway.

"G'day Sn1peronthe r00f, Thanks for your question. Ben Nevis (or Beinn Nibheis in Scottish Gaelic) is the highest mountain in the British Isles. It is in the Grampians range, situated in the west of Scotland, close to the town of Fort William, in Lochaber, Highland. It is one of 284 Munros (mountains in Scotland that reach an elevation of 3,000 feet - equivalent to 914.4 m - or more). It is 1344 metres high or 4409 metres. The first path up the Ben was constructed in 1883. It was designed by local headmaster, Colin Livingston, and cost £800. The bridle path was built to let ponies make deliveries to the newly constructed summit observatory. This relatively simple route to the summit, now known simply as the 'Ben Path', and commonly referred to as the 'tourist route', begins at the Glen Nevis Visitor Centre about one mile (1.6 km) from Fort William town centre, and a short distance up the mountain is joined by a path from the youth hostel. Another popular route is from Steal further up Glen Nevis, it is shorter and steeper, and tends to be used by climbers with a modicum of experience. The first few runs up the Ben were solos runs. Of these, the first recorded was in 1895. William Swan, a hairdresser/tobacconist from Fort William, ran from the old post office in 2 hours 41 minutes. In 1897, Spencer Acklom recorded a time of 2:55, and later William MacDonald from Leith improved the record to 2:27. Two months later Swan again took the record with a time of 2:20, and in 1896 MacDonald improved this to 2:18. The first competitive race was held in 1899. 10 competitors set off from the Lochiel Arms Hotel in Banavie. The winner was Hugh Kennedy, a gamekeeper at Tor Castle. The 1903 race was from Achintee and to the summit only. It was won in just over an hour by Ewen MacKenzie from Achintore, the observatory roadman. That year, there was another race, from the new Fort William post office, and MacKenzie lowered the record to 2:10. Hugh Kennedy was in second place. MacKenzie's record held for 34 years. The race now starts from Claggan Park, and the route is about 4 miles shorter than in the early years. The current record for men is 1 hour and 25 minutes, and 1 hour 43 minutes for women. I have attached sources for your reference. Regards"

I walked up Ben Nevis on Friday evening. It took 2 and 3/4 hours up, and 2 and 1/2 hours down. How many calories would I have probably burned to do this. It is 4406 feet high, is Britain's highest mountain, and has some snow at the top. I started at the youth hostel at the bottom. As a comparison, how many calories do you burn when you run 4km at 10.5 kmh (23 minutes). Thanks.

Matt M :
"Calories burned depends on a multitude of factors and you didn't give all of them in your description. Calories burned depends on your height, your weight, any weight you carried, the horizontal distance (ie km of the trail) the vertical distance, and the average speed(ie did you take a bunch or rests or did you go all out for periods then stop for a while). Unless you use heart rate monitors and pedometers you will really only get a sort of guess/estimate of the calories burned."

"At 175 lbs, you burn 3125.55 calories during 300 minutes of Hiking. At 175 lbs, you burn 902 calories running 10.5 km."
