The glaciers of the Tsatsa massif

The Tsatsa massif from E The Tsatsa massif from E, August 20, 1994. (92 kB)

The Tsatsa massif is a loosely connected high mountain massif between Njåtjosvagge and Tjuoltavagge-Puoites in southern Sarek. The highest peak is Tsatsa (1852 m), and the massif is split up into three smaller parts by the valley Låptåvagge and the plateau at Mankitjårro. The massif contains just 2 glaciers.

Tsatsajekna (0.18 km2) is a small ice cap on the southeast slope of Tsatsa. It is not plotted on the mountain map, but is undoubtedly a real glacier, which its large terminal moraine also shows.
