Kyrgyz Glaciers

Kyrgyzstan is the country of excessive mountains at different altitudes with glaciers as part of the territory of Kyrgyzstan. The higher the altitude, the longer snow lies. And the snows don't melt in mountains in Kyrgyzstan. It is called the process of creating a glacier. U-shaped valleys are the places where the sheets of formed ice are pushed down on; on its way there is going the process of carrying glacial deposit. It is better to rent a car and reach glaciers.

Depending on different circumstances as width, thickness and slope of a valley, the Glacier Rivers are going at a rate of 3-40 cm a day.  Going down the panorama the splits are covered with recently fallen snow and this snow is seen far from mountains of Kyrgyzstan starting off for a package tour. Usually due to low temperatures, the snow becomes permanent, the square of which is about 8100 km2. The total area of Kyrgyzstan is estimated not by land but also glaciers, the total area of which becomes about 30 % of the total area land and 4 % of the surface area.
