Answer :

A glacier is the mass movement of ice.

In mountainous regions, there is continuous snowfall, just like the plains have rainfall. This snow accumulates and forms ice. It slowly moves down, and upon reaching the water surface, it begins to melt. A small river is formed here.


For example, the Himalayas have the Gangotri glacier. The river Ganga is formed from here.


Glaciers are not found in our surroundings because it exists only in cold areas where snow falls. Since we do not live in an area surrounded by mountains, glaciers do not exist near us.
