About #MoChWo

Mountains are a part of global biodiversity repository and play a vital role in maintaining global ecosystems, support millions of people. In the mean time they are the most vulnerable to rapid environmental change.   The international conference on “Mountains in the Changing World” aims to provide a forum for international/national scholars, researchers, policy maker and students with opportunity to share their research findings and knowledge related to various aspects of mountains. We are sure that this conference can be an effective and insightful for the benefit of people depending on mountains. The #MoChWo will be held in Kathmandu, Nepal. Kathmandu is known for long history, ancient cultures and civilizations, Hindu and Buddhist temples, architecture & sculptures. It hosts seven UNESCO world heritage sites. Kathmandu is also the gateway of many high Himalayas in Nepal. The conference month (October) is considered to be the best time to visit Nepal.
