We present the first high resolution measurements of pollutant trace gases in the Asian Summer Monsoon Upper Troposphere and Lowermost Stratosphere (UTLS) from the Gimballed Limb Observer for Radiance Imaging of the Atmosphere (GLORIA) during the StratoClim (Stratospheric and upper tropospheric processes for better climate predictions) campaign based in Kathamandu, Nepal, 2017. Measurements of peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN), acetylene (C$_2$H$_2$), and formic acid (HCOOH) show strong local enhancements up to altitudes of 16 km. More than 500 pptv of PAN, more than 200 pptv of C$_2$H$_2$, and more than 200 pptv of HCOOH are observed.
