The Glacial runoff in the Himalayan region is one of the largest sources of fresh water that feeds the giant rivers in Asia and has been supporting  half of humanity. The snow at the poles are fast melting and the climate change in these regions often make it to the news. However, the Himalayan region is largely left unreported, which poses a greater threat and reduces the possibility of preserving the environment as the Himalayas are receding at a faster pace than that in any other part of the world.

“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense”. We are no climate change sceptic, and we have seen its effect on shrinking glaciers many times and every picture tells the true story.
