 DESCRIPTION
spacer

The Himalayas are the highest, the loftiest and the most fragile ecosystem on the Earth. As they accumulate the largest mass of snow and ice outside the North and South Poles, it is often referred to as the "Third Pole". The Third Pole, apart from influencing global weather system, also contributes to cooling the planet Earth.

This book attempts to present a real picture of the Himalayas as emerging owing to ominous climate change which is spreading its tentacles all over the globe and needs to be adequately and conclusively responded.
