Majestic natural ice sculptures at Khumbu glacier, Everest Base Camp. A study says that due to global warming, the glaciers like Khumbu are melting, causing them to retreat by around 18-20 m every year. The frequent avalanches in the recent years in the area have been attributed to global warming and unstable glaciers in the upper region.
