MYAGDI: Snow on the world’s 7th tallest mountain Mt. Dhaulagiri, lying in Myangdi, is turning black with the melt down in of the snow as the result of increasing temperature.
“Every year during December there used to be an excessive snowfall here but this year there is snowfall in March.” said tourism entrepreneur, Bom Bahadur Pun. He added, “No sufficient snowfall and melting of the glaciers and snowfall is turning mountain Dhaulagiri to black hill.”
According to Tiliza, a mountaineer in Myagdi “Japanese base camp was always covered with snow every year but this year all snows are melting.”
Not only Dhaulagiri, mount Gurja, Churen and Putha are also turning black due to excessive warming of the planet. “There is not any sufficient snowfall even in these mountains.” said Chantyal, a local person.
According to the study done by District Development Committee and Dhaulagiri Tourism Assembly, global warming is causing avalanche and creating difficulties for the wild animals.
