Nepal has finished draining a dangerous glacial lake near Mount Everest to a safe level, BBC.
Nepal's army reported the Imja glacial lake has had it level lowered by 3.4m after months of painstaking work to prevent downstream settlements from the danger of flooding.
Many of the lakes are said to be filling up fast because of accelerated melting of glaciers amid rising global temperatures.
