The Indian soldier who vanished on a glacier 38 years ago

View descriptionShare

As the climate crisis causes water levels to plummet, riverbeds to dry and glaciers to melt, artefacts like old warships, an ancient city, a mosque, 'hunger stones' and human remains have emerged. The body of an Indian soldier was found on Siachen Glacier. His widow always hoped he would ‘come home someday’.

This story is part of “Climate artefacts”, a mini-series telling the stories behind the people, places and objects that have been discovered due to drought and warming temperatures.
