Parkachik Glacier

Parkachik Glacier is a mountain glacier in the mountains of Nun-Kun, Suru Valley, Kargil, Jammu and Kashmir

We visited this place during our Photo-tour to Zanskar.

Parkachik Glacier, situated at Parkachik, is a majestic mass of ice moving slowly down the NunKun slopes,which falls finally into the SuruRiver, providing a magnificent view of the huge ice-fall.

Great chunks of ice periodically shell 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 reach 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 is 90 Kms north from Kargil.
