Karola Glacier

Karola Glacier, 71 KM from Gyantse County town, is one of the three largest continental glaciers. The glacier covers 9.4 square kilometers. The upper part of the glacier under the bright sunshine is like a giant Thangka, showing the craftsmanship if the nature.

Several films in China contain the views of the glacier, and thus making it very famous among Chinese tourists. About two hours away from Yamdrok Lake is Karola Glacier. It isn’t a big glacier, but the white glacier is spectacular from the highway, and it is close enough (about 300 yards) to walk to from the highway. The glacier shines a brilliant white in the rays of the sun. Inside the ice stack you can see the various layers that make up this moving river of ice, and you can climb up close to it to get a better view.
