Kosinenko Glacier is the largest glacier on the northern slope of the North Tanymas ridge. It is a complex valley glacier with a well-developed feeding area located at the junction of the North Tanymas ridge with the Kyzkurgan ridge.
On the map of 1928 it is shown as a tributary of the Fedchenko Glacier, however in 1934 its tongue deviated from the main trunk by 2 kilometers, and by 1949 this distance increased to 6 kilometers, and a dammed lake was formed in the estuary of the valley, which exists even now.
