A closer look at the Himalayas reveals an Eco friendly construction for Homeless Animals.
Of special mention is the Natural Insulator “The Alfa Alfa” Grass ( Scientific name Medicago sps.) on the rooftop. Alfa Alfa is native to the Ladakh region and used extensively throughout the region. It is used as fodder for all the domesticated herbivores and Horses as well.
Do observe the dense Fur on the Rams. The famous Pashmina Goats are also native to the arid cold desert of Ladakh.
The Eco friendly Walls of Mud and Roofs of Grass are the perfect construction in the cold climate of Ladakh.
