Digital elevation models and bathymetry data of Tsho Rolpa glacier lake, Nepal, 2019

3D digital elevation models of Tsho Rolpa glacier lake, Nepal, generated from unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) imagery, with a spatial resolution of 10 centimetres. It is combined with bathymetry data so that both the lakebed elevation (DTM) and the lake surface elevation (DSM) are obtained.
