A rapidly retreating glacier on the side of the 6428 metre peak of Gandharwa Chuli in the Annapurna sanctuary, Nepalese Himalayas. All of the Himalayas glaciers are retreating rapidly due to climate change. The glaciers feed many of Asia's largest rivers that billions of people rely on for water. As these reservoirs disappear, it will have disastrous consequences for water supplies.
