There were times when the Himalayas got acknowledged for their pure waters and unharmed lands. However, the things are taking U-turn at the moment and the overall credit goes to us for disposing of away all the plastic almost everywhere, and the Himalayas are not an exemption.
Whilst we are still finding a way to dispose the trash in towns and on the beach sides, the video posted by Healing Himalayas will surely shake you from within.
A truthful pile of waste material gets snaking its way via the river extending for hundreds of metres and posing a risk to both human well-being and the surroundings.
The garbage is flowing from the top, collecting everything that was thrown on the hills and in the river. The sight, which is just terrible and upsetting has shocked a lot of buffs and ecologists - however, there is only so much that they can do.
Once the video recording hit the web, it attracted a lot of condemnation, assistance and ideas from people, but nothing can be of assistance if we don't promise to maintain and keep our hills uncontaminated.
