Shutterbug Showcase: Smoggy Kathmandu

My hometown during heavy smog last week. The smog was caused by about more wildfires spread across Nepal. The Air Quality Index (AQI) had reached over 400 (extremely hazardous).

Wildfires (caused by humans) still continue and reports of smog have come from almost all the major cities. Kathmandu is clearer today but unless human induced wildfire is going to be severely punished, there is no way pollution will be reduced.
