Mendenhall Ice Caves also called Mendenhall Glacier, it occupies about 19 kilometers of the Mendenhall Valley in Juneau, in the southeastern United States in the state of Alaska. It was originally known as “the glacier behind the town” (Sitaantaagu) or the glacier behind the little lake (Aak’wtaaksit).
The glacier was named Auke in memory of naturalist John Muir. In 1981 the name was changed. This time it was in honor of Thomas Corwin Mendenhall, one of the most important scientific professors of the region.
It is a true spectacle of nature, but in this case the most impressive thing is underground. In the interior we can find some paths covered by glacial ice in which you can glimpse a series of bright colors that nowhere else can be seen.
We can find two waterfalls that slide down the adjacent mountain and its passage in the glacier form huge ice caves forming these trails that will allow you to live one of the most beautiful experiences of your life.
You can find paths lined with glacial ice. Paths adorned by bright colors that no other corner under the Earth can imitate. It even features two waterfalls cascading down an adjacent mountain.
One of the most impressive sights of the glacier is its extremely blue ice cave: the combination of the ice walls with the sunlight provides an incredible view.
