|Abstract:||The 1963 American Scientific Expedition to Everest first suggested that the Himalaya are effectively a third pole. In this article, some salient aspects of Himalaya and polar environments are dealt with and similarities between the Himalaya and the Arctic and the Antarctic are investigated. Nationally and internationally coordinated efforts aimed at monitoring the unique Himalayan environment are essential from several considerations.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/123456789/7093|
