Pulpudeva Glacier (Bulgarian: ледник Пулпудева) is the 4.6 nautical miles (8.5 km; 5.3 mi) long and 3.2 nautical miles (5.9 km; 3.7 mi) wide glacier in Sullivan Heights, Sentinel Range in Ellsworth Mountains, Antarctica. It is draining the area northeast of Nebeska Peak, north of Johnson Col and northwest of Mount Farrell, flowing northwards west of Mount Levack, and (together with Crosswell and Patton Glaciers) joining Ellen Glacier northwest of Mamarchev Peak and southeast of Mount Jumper.

The glacier is named after the ancient Thracian town of Pulpudeva in Southern Bulgaria.
