Parkichik

parichik

Parkachik Glacier, located at Parkachik, is a majestic mass of ice moving slowly down the Nun-Kun slopes. This ice mass falls finally into the Suru River, providing a magnificent view of the huge ice-fall.

Great slabs of ice periodically peel off the glacier's 300 foot high front wall. A good suspension footbridge over the Suru River is there for the visitors to walk up to the glacier. Some mountaineers use this glacier to approach the difficult north face route to scale Mt Nun.

Excellent camping areas are offered in the upper Suru Valley. Panikhar is a nearby place of attraction.

Parkachik can be approached from Kargil, which is 90 km north.
