There was a time when Himalayas were known for their pristine waters and untouched lands. But now things are taking a turn for the worse. Thanks to all the plastic disposed off by us almost everywhere, and Himalayas are no exception.

While we are still figuring out a way to get rid of garbage in the cities, and on the beaches, this video shared by Healing Himalayas, will jolt you from within.

A literal pile of trash is snaking its way through the river stretching for hundreds of metres and posing a threat to both human health and the environment.

And then we complain of the dirty oceans. They give what they get - Trash.

So what is it? Is it the government policy...

... Or the ever-growing population?

Plastic is causing havoc in our lives.

Tourism and trekking in the Himalayas has been on a rise and it's high time we realize our responsibility.

Do we really deserve to live here?

It's really sad to see our water sources in such a state. 

Instead of waiting for things to happen, let's do our part guys and stop throwing garbage just everywhere.
