Kolahoi Glacier, Pahalgam

Home » Destinations » Pahalgam » Attractions » Kolahoi Glacier

Kolahoi Glacier, also known as the hanging glacier, is situated in the Lidder Valley. The cause behind the glacier “hanging” is attributed to global warming and other environmental factors. It is suggested that tourists see the glacier from the right side as there are less boulder fields in that area. Also the left side is considered unsafe as a vantage point. The only way to reach up to this glacier is by trekking, which is quiet difficult in these terrains. It is therefore suggested that amateur trekkers do not do this without professional guidance.
