Dear MEL Topic Readers,

The Cashmere crisis in the Himalayan ice desert

Cashmere wool is fiber taken from cashmere goats. Because of its fine, strong, light, soft, and high insulating features, cashmere wool is highly valued around the world. The soft hair is actually the undercoat of Cashmere goats which live in an unforgiving mountainous region in the Ladakh Range and the Changthang plateau where average altitude reaches six kilometers high and the winter temperatures could mark -40 degrees Celsius. The severe conditions stimulate the growth of the goat’s soft undercoat, which is essential for the goats and valuable for humans.

But because of climate change and wildlife conservation programs, both of which are initiated by humans, the environment of the roof-of-the-world is changing.

Enjoy reading the article and seeing staggering photos of lives in the Changthang plateau.
