Glaciers in all their glory

Glaciers are truly fascinating and what makes them increasingly special is the obvious evidence that they are disappearing. Actually, they are melting at an alarming rate. In some locations such as in Alaska it is indicated by sign boards how the glaciers have been retreating over the past 30 or 40 years. Among the most impressive glaciers, in terms of size and colour, are those in Alaska and in Argentina’s Patagonia area. Among the largest are the glaciers in Greenland and Iceland. Among the most remote are probably those in Greenland and Pakistan. In Svalbard you can literally climb through a hole in the snow to enter by ladder and rope the deep inside of the subterranean glacial frozen rivers. The photos here showcase some of the most beautiful glaciers in Alaska, Argentina, Iceland, Nepal, Norway, Switzerland, Pakistan and Tibet.
