Glacier National Park is commonly said to be the most beautiful travel destination of Montana, USA. It also borders Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. Glacier National Park got its name from the 150 glaciers it once had in mid 1800s. Later on owing to global warming these glaciers turned into lakes. Today there are only 25 intact glaciers that can be seen in the park. It has been estimated that by 2030 all the glaciers will meltdown.
