Langtang Valley was one of the worst affected by the 7.8 and 7.3 magnitude quakes that hit Nepal on April 25, and 12 May 2015. As in many villages in Nepal, settlements in Langtang Valley suffered substantial to catastrophic damage.

Permafrost Field Expedition to Yala, Langtang Valley, Nepal

ICIMOD and partners carry out an expedition to Yala Glacier in the Langtang Valley, Nepal, as part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme, which is part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme and is funded by the Norwegian government .

A small team of ICIMOD researchers recently returned to earthquake-ravaged Langtang Valley to rebuild and maintain the network of hydrological and meteorological stations that was partly destroyed by the 25 April Gorkha tremors...

(ICIMOD) leave for Langtang Valley and Yala Glacier this spring for routine maintenance of meteorological stations, data collection, and mass

of a hanging glacier in the Langtang Lirung and Langtang II Mountains above the valley to become unhinged and collide into the mountain below, prompting an avalanche of snow, ice, and

New paper provides insight on temperature and precipitation gradients in the Langtang Valley of Nepal

The field work was merged with several other projects to make optimal use of field personnel and logistics. In addition to visiting the ICIMOD/KU/DHM meteorological and hydrological stations, we conducted maintenance on precipitation stations

Glacier Mass Balance set-up in the Yala Glacier in Langtang Valley in Nepal and Glacier Mass Balance Field Training

Glacier Mass Balance Field Training and Glacio-hydrological Short-term Intensive Fieldwork on the Yala Glacier in Langtang Valley, Nepal

We made a UAV flight plan and launched the optical UAV flight twice to cover the debris part of the glacier. I was trained on how to make a flight plan, launch UAV, and monitor the progress of the flight through eMotion using area map and the flight

He pulled the string of the generator one more time, It did not move an inch. Not only was the machine stuck, so were we. Fieldwork is not like in the old days any more where a tape measure and notebook were enough. Now we bring drones (unmanned

By the end of the year, ICIMOD had repaired broken weather stations, replaced broken sensors and solar panels, and continued its scientific work by conducting surveys of surface height change of the debriscovered Langtang and Lirung glaciers.

Water generated in the high mountains of the Himalayas plays a critical role in the major rivers of Asia and in the lives of people that live there. A new mini-documentary produced by Science Media, in collaboration with scientists from Utrecht

the highest discharge of Langtang Khola and Lirung outlet, a team of glacio-hydrologists from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and Kathmandu University conducted a field expedition to Langtang valley from 29

The 7.8 magnitude Nepal earthquake on April 25, 2015 and subsequent aftershocks caused more than 8,500 fatalities, nearly 22,500 injured, and damaged thousands of buildings. The powerful quake also left potential secondary hazard risk from

Joint expedition to Yala Glacier, Langtang, Nepal

The way up to Rikha Samba is steep. Occasionally we encounter snow showers crossing over windy high passes, but always in high spirit.

The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is exploring the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to better understand change processes of mountain glaciers, and use appropriate volume estimation methods for different

Based on the observations of a rapid field visit in June, a team of scientists from ICIMOD will make its way into Langtang Valley 14 – 30 October 2015 to repair benchmark stations damaged by the Nepal Earthquake and subsequent avalanches...
