Himalayan 'drop after Nepal quake'


The height of the Himalayas has dropped by around one metre as a result of the devastating Nepal earthquake.

But they add that the drop will roughly be balanced by slow uplift due to tectonic activity.

And they have yet to analyse satellite images of the region in which the most famous Himalayan peak - Everest - is located.

However, there continues to be debate over exactly how tall Everest is.
