The Hailuo valley and its glacier, on the eastern side of Mt. Gongga in the Tibetan region of Garze on the southeast edge of the Tibetan Plateau. The glacier has retreated over 2 km during the 20th century alone. Since the Little Ice Age, studies have revealed that the total monsoonal glacier coverage in the southeast of the Tibetan Plateau has decreased by as much as 30 percent, causing alarm in scientific circles.
