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 University and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), follows a team of researchers as they return to Langtang Valley after the April 2015 earthquake. Follow their journey, and learn about debris-covered glaciers, the impacts of the earthquake, the innovative ways research is being conducted in the high mountains, and how this research can help people of the region adapt to future climate change.
