PASTURELAND

November 26, 2017
Dhap, Okhaldhunga
Due to changing climate patterns in the HImalayan region. the availability of green pasture for grazing has been affected. Agricultural land is thin in the region and locals are dependent on livestock farming for subsistence, which has promted the farmers to migrate in search for newer pastures. Yaks cannot survive in warmer climate and they are important livestock for the people of the region. As the temperatures increase they are being moved to upper regions, which has resulted in swaths of migration in the upper hilly and lower Himalayan belt.
