Chorbari Bamak

Located in Rudraprayag District, Chorbari Bamak is a 6 km long glacier that originates from the southern slopes of Kedar Dome, Bharte Khunta and Kirti Stambh. It is this hill range that acts as the water divide, which separates the Gangotri group of glaciers and the Chorbari glacier.

The glacier is fed by several hanging glaciers and avalanche chutes. It starts from its accumulation zone, which is around 600 m, and terminates at an altitude of 3800 m. A snow-fed stream called Mandakini originates from this point.

The glacier is situated just 3 km from the Kedarnath temple.
