Climate change threat looms over Kailash-Mansarovar, says new report

The threat of climate change is looming over Mount Kailash and Mansarovar, considered holy by four religions. A new study predicts that in the Kailash region, temperatures will increase as it will rain, colder regions will recede, forests and meadows will cover more area and mountain communities will experience serious changes in natural cycles. The study was carried out by the Kathmandu based International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD).
