Ice Stupa Himalaya
building an artificial glacier in Zanskar
Zanskari people are mostly self-sufficient farmers and totally depended on their crops and domestic animals. In the high altitude they grow barley, wheat, peas and some vegetables (potatoes, carrots, cabbage, spinach)
We have chosen Langmi Youlsum village because they have the most shortage of water as compared to other villages and all the villagers are highly involved in this project.
This project will enable to continue the traditional lifestyle of the Himalayan culture.
Transportation cost CHF 300
Foundation and pipe line cost CHF 900
Maintenance cost CHF 300
Total budget CHF 3200
Crowdfunding 9% fee (270 CHF)

I am Yeshi Dorjay from Zanskar living in Switzerland since three years. I am a trekking guide in Ladakh during summer time and here in Switzerland, I am working as an assistant cook in a Japanese Restaurant in Bern city Switzerland. Together with my friends from Zanskar and support from Langmi village we have decided to carry out this project.
