The clouds come in quickly over the valley on the way from Gangotri glacier towards Bhojpasa. The Himalayas play a significant role in the dynamics of the Indian monsoon. Radiation balance due to snow and ice cover provides feedback mechanisms for advection water vapour from the surrounding oceans needed for the maintenance of seasonal cycles such as the monsoon.
