The forests have declined especially in the vicinity of Manali town, other settlements, and agricultural land (Fig. 4). 48 Fig. 3 Land use/cover change in Manali tehsil during 1989–2011 S.

Similarly, the agricultural land covered about 6 % (44 km2) in 1989, which increased to about 8 % (59 km2) in 2011. 8 km2 for agricultural land in high altitude mountain area in such a short time period is a critical issue, since it may lead to significant loss of ecosystem services.

Therefore, controls on population growth and construction activities are required so that the high altitude ecosystems are preserved for future generations.
