Abstract: Two ice cores were extracted from Rikha Samba Glacier located in the central Nepal Himalayas in 1994 and 1998. Ice core quality in 1994 was poor due to cutter problems and samples were melted in situ. In 1998,a better ice core was successfully extracted and brought to Japan in frozen condition. The logistics of drilling, the transportation and preservation of ice, and problems of ice core drilling in Nepal are presented in this paper.
