The Greater Himalaya is home to the greatest concentration of subpolar glaciers in the world. But, slowly, they have begun to disappear.
From the Indus to the Brahmaputra, many of Asia’s major river systems rely on the glaciers for a portion of their perennial water supply.
The GlacierWorks team is currently in the field, collecting new and valuable information about the people who rely on the glaciers for their perennial water supply.
Covering hundreds of miles of the Himalayan Region and hundreds of years of exploration, our team fuses the past and the present into one illuminating whole.
