Biafo Glacier

Biafo Glacier is sited on the south-facing inclines of the Karakoram Range in the Baltistan area of Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir. With a maximum length of 60 km, it descends from a large glacial channel.

The main stream starting from this glacier flows into the Shigar River, a tributary of the Indus River. Small valley glaciers nourish the main glacier at different points.

Biafo Glacier can be approached via Skardu in Ladakh.
