In 2013, Mr Wangchuk created history and earned international recognition with his invention of the Ice Stupa - an artificial glacier of sorts which stores surplus Winter water in the form of ice cones or hills. In warmer months, melted water from the stupas is used for irrigation and other necessary purposes.
