    The Himalayas are one of the most important water sources in India; their glaciers feed the largest rivers on the continent. But the past decades have seen the glaciers shrinking, causing flooding in many Asian countries. The melting of the glaciers is attributed to both rising air temperatures (climate change) and pollution, which causes soot and dust and settle on the mountain slopes. These dust and soot particles accelerate the melting of the glaciers by drawing in more heat because of their dark color. Also, the lakes surrounding the mountains have been polluted excessively in recent years from tourists and waste.

     

    If you’re looking at Manali in particular, the air quality there is below average. The chemicals found in the air there are causing many respiratory problems for citizens.
