After the release of the film, Leh became a tourist hub. Although tourism brought life to the town with buzzing economic activity, there arise another issue. The garbage problem.

Waste to revenue

Recently, the Leh administration came up with a novel idea to deal with the garbage problem. The administration had converted tonnes of waste into recyclable products and decorative items. The remaining waste was sold to scrap dealers. A critical response to the garbage problem had helped the ecologically sensitive region.

Tsang Da

The administration, in order to turn waste into revenue generating products, had come up with a project named Tsang-da.
