The Nanda Devi Group of glaciers is a reference to the cluster of seven glaciers namely Bartoli, Kururntoli, Nada Devi North, Nanda Devi South, Nandakna, Ramani and Trsul of Uttarakhand.[2]

The glacier rose to fame, due to its breaking, which led to the 2021 Uttarakhand flood. Global warming has been blamed.[3]
