Fresh air of the Himalayas?

Anyone who first arrives in Kathmandu immediately will notice how polluted the air is here. It is just impossible not to notice: black smoke from the passing cars penetrates into your nose and mouth and makes your breathing hard. There are a lot of old cars, plus no one cares to control the CO level, plus the quality of diesel and gasoline is poor - all of these further increases air pollution. In winter, when long load shedding is a practice, all factories, shops, cinemas and the citizens at home are forced to use generators, the emissions from which do not improve the ecological situation in the city. Also smoke, ash particles and brick dust from various industries such as cement, brick kiln, stone grinding and diesel plants are directly released into the atmosphere... That's how we live…
