Global warming threatens glaciers. In the news time from time slips that one or another icy river is endangered. So the best way is to hurry in order to make sure that the photos do not lie, and the ice really is all shades of blue and pink colors, and not white, as it appears to those who saw it only in the form of icicles, hanging from the roofs of houses.
Here I have compiled some of the most beautiful glaciers around the globe. I hope you will like it.
Biafo Glacier, Pakistan
Biafo glacier takes us to a journey to the edge of the ice plains and to the Snow Lake. You will not stop appreciating its grandeur of the surrounding flora and fauna.
Perito Moreno Glacier, Argentina
In the national park of Lago Argentino, there are 13 entire glaciers, but the most beautiful of them is recognized as Perito Moreno.
Glacier Bay, Alaska
Glacier Bay is a huge national park on the south-eastern coast of Alaska. To observe the sparkling ice, you do not have to leave the hotel, which is located directly on the territory of the park.
Furtwangler Glacier, Tanzania
Furtwangler Glacier is almost on the equator and is gradually melting and according to the predictions of scientists, by 2020, will disappear altogether.
Vatnajokull Glacier, Iceland
The largest glacier of Iceland, about 80% of the total area of the ice covers of the island. With the cold beauty of ice in the center competes the stiffened in fancy bends lava of the neighboring volcanic landscape.
Yulong Glacier, China
The air at this height is rarefied, and those who wish to enjoy securely the sparkling blocks of all shades of blue, must be equipped with oxygen masks.
Fox and Franz Josef Glacier, New Zealand
The glacier is flowing in frozen waterfalls from the western slope of the Southern Alps, come so close to the sub-tropical evergreen forests that their neighborhood seems completely unnatural.
Athabasca Glacier, Canada
Another fast-melting glacier, which is regarded as the most beautiful in North America, in recent years has lost almost half of its bulk.
And, of course, more snow and ice can be found in Antarctica and that apparently has been the cause of the increased popularity of the continent in light of global warming.
Pasterze Glacier, Austria
Resting at the foot of Austria’s tallest mountain, the Pasterze Glacier is today about five miles long. Visitors can take in a magnificent view of both glacier and mountain.
