Photos from the glacier

The first of the following three photos shows the location of the glacial plateau under which the lake causing the flood is located. During a flood, the water flows under the glacier and feeds into the small lake at the second photo. Since the lake doesn’t have the capacity to hold much water and there is no end moraine or other barrier, the water passes through the canal in the third photo before washing down all the way to the village.
