Beautiful Glaciers in the World
Drang Drung Himalayas India
Probably the second largest of the Himalayan glaciers, after the Siachen, this is probably one of the easiest to get to. You can reach it by car from the popular city of Srinagar, or even directly from Srinagar airport and its a beautiful sight to behold.
But its beauty belies the delicate part it plays in the local river system. Being that it feeds the Doda River, its increased recession could one day lead to the river running dry completely, resulting in drought in the region. This gives us the all too brutal reality of how glacial melt can affect local communities.
