he Himalayas and adjacent mountain ranges are an important source of water for more than 25% of the global population. However, it is unknown how much snow and rain falls in those vast mountain ranges, because of the lack of observations and the

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

The performance of glaciohydrological models which simulate catchment response to climate variability depends to a large degree on the data used to force the models.

The northern part is also very cold and the temperature goes down to -17oC in January. The southern part is bit warmer.


Many records indicate that the trend of rising temperatures is more significant in mountain regions than adjacent lowlands. Climate models also suggest that the future will bring greater temperature increase and more erratic precipitation.
