Huaraz with Cordillera Blanca
WI_pe046.jpg Quebrada Ishinca  |  Laguna Adamcocha Thumbnails Huaraz  |  Panoramic view with Cordillera Blanca

View from the slopes of the Cordillera Negra in eastern direction over Huaraz to the valleys of the Quilcay catchment draining into the city. In 1941, Huaraz was badly affected by a glacial lake outburst flood of Laguna Palcacocha in the Cojup Valley. The highest among the glacierized peaks in the background is Nevado Huantsán (6369 m, right centre).
