View towards SW (downstream). This dam, with an estimated volume of 1-1.5 cubic kilometres, was most probably created by a large rock mass movement, even though there is evidence of glacial deposits included in the dam material. Note the terraced lake sediments in the foreground and the narrow gorge eroded through the dam.
