• Mountain glaciers and the ecosystems that depend on them are amongst the most sensitive to climate change and are disappearing fast. Climate challenges in the Himalayas include melting glaciers, changing water supplies and pressure on species such as the Asian Elephant, Greater One-Horned Rhino and the Bengal Tiger.

  • Stretching across Nepal, Bhutan, northeast India, southeast Tibet and northern Myanmar, the Himalayas is the highest mountain range in the world. It’s home to many iconic species such as the Asian Elephant, Greater One-Horned Rhino and the Bengal Tiger. Himalayan glaciers are the water towers of Asia, and the source of many of the world’s great rivers: the Yangtza, the Ganges, the Indus and the Mekong.

    THE PROBLEM
    Mountain glaciers and the ecosystems that depend on them are among the most sensitive to climate change and are disappearing fast. Glacier melt is predicted to intensify in the coming years, posing a serious threat to water systems dependent on them. This endangers water supplies, biodiversity, food and energy security of some one billion people relying on the Himalayas as their source of water.

    GLACIER X PRIX
    The championship heads to the Kali Gandaki valley – site of the deepest gorge in the world – amid the stunning Annapurna region of Nepal, with the mountain range bearing the same name looming over the arena.

    This Mustang District, 400km from Kathmandu, hangs 2,750m above sea level. Drivers will have to contend not just with the altitude but also elevation changes, coarse gravel, deep ruts and rocky obstacles, as well as the Gandaki river – one of the major tributaries feeding the Ganges.
