Photo: Tasman Glacier New Zealand

A beautiful scenic picture of the snow covered Tasman Glacier in Mount Cook National Park in New Zealand.

This glacier is located in the Mount Cook National Park and is approximately twenty-seven kilometers in length and as much as three kilometers wide in areas.Tasman Glacier has shown major retreat in the past fifteen years and the moraine walls increase slightly in height as the ice thins.

The glacier has created many lakes in the Mount Cook National Park and will continue to do so as the thick, massive ice continues to melt.Many tourists come to New Zealand to ski the adventurous slopes of the Tasman Glacier. The scenery from the top of the monumental peaks is one of the most spectacular sights on the South Island of New Zealand. ... continue below the picture...
