What is kul irrigation?

kul irrigation is an ingenious system, devised centuries ago to tap distant glaciers for water. Kul means diversion channel. These channels carry water from glacier to village. The kul is lined with rocks to keep it from becoming clogged. The kuls often span long distances. Some kuls are 10 km long and have existed for centuries in the Spiti area of Himachal Pradesh.
