The summit is surrounded by the Eastern Coromoto glacier and the Sievers glacier, the two largest out of the four glaciers remaining in the country (the other two smaller glaciers are on Pico Bolívar). The glaciers on Humboldt Peak (as most tropical glaciers) have been receding fast since the 1970s and they are forecast to melt completely in a couple of decades.
