Scientists at the University of Aberdeen are developing an artificial glacier designed to solve the water crisis in the Himalayas.

Glaciers known as ice towers were discovered in 2013 by engineer Sonam Wangchuck, but they are still in their infancy, researchers say.

The towers release water from the fountain tap used to grow crops.

These towers were built in Ladakh, North India, one of the driest places in the world.
