Abstract

This paper focuses on the Nanga Parbat massif in the Himalaya Range of Pakistan, Garhwal Himalaya of northwest India, and Manaslu-Ganesh Himals of central Nepal. The A. has highlighted 3 special insights that geographers offer to increase understanding of human impacts on the stability of mountain landscapes : 1), the mixed methods and theories employed to resolve the debate over human-triggered changes in the physical landscape in mountains and explain the disconnect between mountain science, policymaking, and resource management; 2), experience and expertise in understanding physical and human systems; 3) modern techniques of measuring rates of geomorphic change to explain spatial variability of natural hazards
