Chong Kumdan Glacier

Surrounded by huge peaks, Chong Kumdan Glacier is located on the lower slopes of the Karakoram Range in Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir. The melt-water from this glacier flows into the Shyok River, and this river joins the Indus River.

Chong Kumdan had blocked the flow of the Shyok River several times in the past and it was helped from the Gapshan River.

This glacier can be reached from Skardu in Ladakh.
