Description :
On the basis of empirical findings and inductive conclusions, the least extent of glaciation during the last ice age can be shown for 2 areas on the southern slopes of the Himalayas in Nepal. For the Rolwaling Himal, the snow line during the last ice age is calculated at 4000 m asl., i.e., 1500 m below the recent snow line. The last high-glacial snow line in the Kangchenjunga Himal is thought to be at 4350 m asl., the snow line depression here is 1150 m.
