In the United States, the Thanksgiving holiday represents a day to give thanks for all of our blessings and signals the beginning of the winter holiday season. The day is often celebrated with a traditional turkey dinner in the company of family and friends. In the spirit of Thanksgiving’s gastronomical tradition, GlacierHub took a look at the types of food consumed by climbers on expeditions in high-altitude glacial environments. Eating properly on and before a strenuous climb is an essential part of any successful ascent.

After finishing your pumpkin pie this holiday season, take a look at some of the meals consumed at high elevations from some amazing glacial regions:
