Mendenhall Ice Cave, located 12 miles from Alaska's capital, Juneau, is perhaps one of the most recognizable natural features of Juneau.
The 13-mile (20.9 km) Mendenhall Glacier is one of 36 glaciers in the 1,500-square-mile Junau Glacier. It is part of the Tongas National Forest.
Earlier, the glaciers had two names, one Sitanatagu meaning the glacier behind the city, the other Ak Otakasti meaning the glacier behind the small lake.
There is a very attractive blue ice cave in this glacier. It goes without saying that there is no air inside this ice and this ice absorbs all the colors except blue so this cave is very bright blue to see. This cave is probably the only place in the world where you can see many shades of natural blue. Will get.
Here you will see crystals created by nature for millions of years
Extraordinary artistic shape of clear ice. This cave may look like a fairytale snow maiden's palace. Ice caves have a blue magic world.
Normally the flow of water flowing through a glacier first forms a hole in the surface of the glacier and as the water flow progresses this hole gradually gets bigger and at one time changes in length and width and takes the shape of a cave.
This is the story behind the formation of most ice caves. And so the ice constantly melts and creates new caves, all of which collapse over time.
If glaciers continue to flow inside the glacier, the glacier will continue to slide downwards, and the ice caves may change significantly, expand, change, or collapse from year to year. Done.
The cave runs 13 miles into the Mendenhall Valley and ends at Lake Mendenhall. The glacier is 3,000 years old. The Mendenhall Glacier is rapidly declining. The mouth of the glacier and its environs are constantly changing.
People who work around the glacier and keep an eye on its changes are hopeful that this decline outside of Mendenhall Lake will be reduced and stabilized.
However, as a result of this event, the ice caves will no longer exist so it is not a natural sight that you will always see. The entrance to this cave on the west side of the glacier.
The path to the ice caves is very difficult and if you are not an experienced hiker or if you do not have an experienced guide with you, you are discouraged from entering this cave.
No matter how you visit the Mendenhall Ice Cave, safety should be a priority. However, it is important to remember that the environment of a glacier is always changing.
If you have the ability to withstand cold-water as well as paddling skills, you can visit the caves.
However, we must keep an eye on the weather changes. However, winter is the best time to go here when the snow is thick.
Due to the greenhouse effect, the ice cave melts, so this trip can be dangerous for those who do not know the safe way. Even after all this, thousands of visitors come to see this cave every year.

They are very instagrammable Baobab Adansonia is a genus of deciduous trees which are native to Madagascar, mainland Africa and Australia. The scientific name Adansonia refers to the French explorer and botanist, Michel Adanson (1727–1806), who observed a specimen in 1749 on the island of Sor, Senegal.The baobab is also known as the "upside down tree", as the sparse branches resemble roots.Baobabs reach heights of 5 to 30 m (16 to 98 ft) and have trunk diameters of 7 to 11 m (23 to 36 ft).Baobabs store water in the trunk (up to 120,000 litres or 32,000 US gallons) to endure harsh drought conditions.
Their growth rate is determined by ground water or rainfall, and their maximum age, which is subject to much conjecture, seems to be in the order of 1,500 years.
