Karola Glacier

Karola Glacier is about 71 kilometers from Gyangtse County of the Tibetan Autonomous Region. You can even see this amazing glacier from the road beside it. Karola Glacier is about 5,600 meters north of the main peak of Karola Mountain. Due to smoke pollution from motor vehicles, the entire glacier is now divided into black and white layers, which gives a distinctive beauty to this masterpiece of nature. A breathtaking view of the Karola Glacier is an unforgettable experience.

If you want to go to Shigatse from Lhasa (about 347km) by road, there are two routes. Most passengers take the "high way". The road goes all the way along the Nyang Chu River, and the road system is quite good.  It is known as the new Lhasa/Shigatse Road. Some people choose a stiff road. It is known as the old Lhasa/Gyantse/Shigatse Road. Take the mountain road, go all the way up to climb up the top of the Gangba-La pass, stop at Yamdrok Lake, and suddenly you will meet Karola Glacier face to face.
