The cafe is basically an artificial glacier and has been constructed by running pipes under the front lines. Making artificial glacier is a popular practice to conserve water in places of high altitude. Ladakh initially suffers from water scarcity during the summers. The water flows through these pipes and is made to fall on the ground in freezing temperatures and leads to ice towers. These towers melt during the spring months and the water is collected in the tanks.

As per reports, the stupa design of the Ice Café has been inspired by the works of the famous Indian engineer, Sonam Wangchuk who is also responsible for the Ice Stupa Project.

Next time you plan a trip to Ladakh, be sure to visit this unique place before it becomes too hot and melts.
