Glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs) are a major threat to the local communities and important infrastructures in the high mountain regions. Early detection of glacial lakes can prevent these disastrous events. Towards this end, we collected Sentinel 2 true color scenes of High-Mountain Asia (HMA) region using glacial lakes inventory of this region. It covers an area of 2080.12 km2 with nearly 30,121 glacial lakes. After data collection, we retained 1200 cloud free true color images and manually generated their ground truth masks. The train and test sets contain 1000 and 200 images, respectively. The dataset covers lakes with different shapes, sizes and radiometric signatures.
