Hanging valleys | Topics | tutor2u Geography

These are formed by tributary glaciers which enter a glacial trough. Unlike in river landscapes they do not cut down to the level of the main valley as the glaciers they carried were considerably smaller, but instead lie suspended above in the valley side at the end of the ice advance. They are often represented by a waterfall emerging from the higher tributary valley in the post-glacial landscape.
