From here we are arranging for a first mission of 5-6 days on the Tuiber Glacier, an important “debris covered Glacier”, namely a glacier with the terminus covered with morenic debris. While Kenneth and Riccardo will leave with the guide George and some porters, to reach the glacier in 2-3 days and begin to monitor its fusion rate, I will replicate some photographs took over 127 years ago from Mor Von Dechy to the “Zanner”, “Kageb” and “Tuiber” Glaciers.
