Tasman Glacier

is the largest of the glaciers in the world outside the polar regions, 29 kilometres long and nine kilometres wide.
There are more than 360 in the Southern Alps of the South Island.
The glaciers carry large amount of rock debris on their surfaces known as moraine as they carve their way move down the mountains.
We've trekked about half way up the Tasman Glacier in 1984 and most of the glacier we trekked on was moraine, although we're told there was ice underneath.
I didn't see, or feel any.
