The Karola Glacier + Map of Tibet

A couple of foreign tourists can be seen walking along the Karola Glacier – 5,560 meters high, situated on the boundary between Nargarze and Gyangze Counties of southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region.

Here’s the Karola Glacier.

We don’t know what the glacier looks like, or how far it extends during its peak. Is it smaller now because of global warming or is it just time to be small? Last year, my wife and I took a cruise to Alaska. The glaciers there are growing. Our environmentalist couldn’t explain why.

In case you have ever been too embarrassed to ask, by the way, where is Tibet?
