  • - [Narrator] This incredible glacier,

  • located in Alaska, is a popular tourist destination.

  • But the best way to see it is from the inside.

  • (soft piano music)

  • Mendenhall Glacier is a 12-mile long glacier

  • in the Mendenhall Valley

  • in Alaska's Tongass National Forest.

  • The ice caves are the glacier's surreal interior.

  • Access to see these icy walls

  • are only available to the truly adventurous.

  • To see the ice caves requires a kayak trip,

  • an ice climb over the glacier,

  • and once you're inside, the faith

  • that the melting walls around you won't give away.

  • But this natural wonder is under threat.

  • The glacier has been retreating

  • incredibly quickly in recent years

  • due to warmer temperatures and rising sea levels.

  • It has receded by almost two miles since 1958.

  • But what remains is an utterly breathtaking fantasy land.
