west Uttar Pradesh during next 48 hours
The mountain ranges that straddle Bhutan, Nepal, China, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are collectively called the High Mountains. After the Arctic and the Antarctic, the region that has Earth's largest store of ice, in more than 46,000 glaciers and vast expanses of permafrost was the High Asia Mountains. For this reason it was also called the Third Pole. The rivers Ganges, Brahmaputra, Indus, Amu Darya and Syr Darya originate from the High Mountains that include the Himalayas, Karkoram, Hindu Kush, Pamir and Tien Shan ranges.
Based on a claim in the 2007 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035 (see Nature 463, 276-277; 2010), NGOs and environmentalists ran a campaign to the run up to the Copenhagen Climate meet.
They suggested the Third Pole is Asia's Water Tower because its glaciers feed the continent's largest rivers that sustain 1.5 billion people across ten countries is now in danger because it is melting fast and filling lakes that can overflow and flood valleys. The result is earth shattering scale of climate refugees, droughts and crop failures! The IPCC claim was exposed as an error and the IPCC was forced to retract the claim.
