The cause of its lowering is due to melting of outside snow around. Global warming is caused by increasing various factories in the world. Its impact in Everest Glacier, Goyko Glacier increased more than before; Everest Glacier is more dangerous than Imja. It has reached at the top of Lukla. Not only this, incessant rainfall or snowfall caused by global warming can burst main water outlet...That is why there is more glacier in Khumbu area year after year.
