Cordillera Blanca | Jatunraju glacier and Nevado Huandoy
WI_pe014.jpg Laguna Parón with Nevado Huandoy Thumbnails Cordillera Blanca  |  Jatunraju glacier and Nevado Huandoy

Panoramic view of the bent terminal part of Jatunraju glacier, framed by a horseshoe-shaped system of large moraine ridges. The former glacier tongue is rather considered a rock glacier due to substantial loss of ice. The moraine ridges impound the largest lake of the Cordillera Blanga, Laguna Parón. Nevado Huandoy (6395 m) appears in the central background of the image.
