The Jamarkyrchin Glacier is located in the Rasht region of the Jirgital district of Tajikistan on the southern slope of the Alai Range, and belongs to the Ptovkul River Basin. In the vast multi-chamber glaciers in the upper reaches of the Pitaukul River there are firn areas of the Jamarkyrchin hollow glacier, which is now practically divided into two glaciers.
The larger left has an area of ​​13.4 square kilometers, the right - 8.5 square kilometers. Their short parts descend to heights of 3740 and 3780 meters above sea level, closely clinging to each other with their end parts.
The total area of ​​firn basins feeding them is 18.8 square kilometers, the area of ​​the ends of the glacier is only 3.1 square kilometers.
