Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory features glaciers in the Kunlun Mountains of Central Asia.

The partially frozen Gozha Lake is also visible in this oblique photograph, which was captured by an astronaut on the International Space Station.

The hundreds of lakes located on the Tibetan Plateau start to freeze between October and December, and this photo was taken at the beginning of the winter freeze.
