Imja Tsho Lake is one of the fastest growing in the entire Himalayan region. Regular monitoring based on scientific data and information of the lake is crucial. To initiate an early warning system, a wireless LAN has been established using innovative geo-ICT tools and technologies to connect different field monitoring devices for real time monitoring and early warning system for potential GLOF. There are three main objectives of this project which includes the demonstration of real time monitoring, establishing early warning system with local community and promotion of Wi-fi technology in remote mountain areas for global connectivity.
