Cordillera Blanca | Pastoruri Glacier with proglacial lake
WI_pe068.jpg Cordillera Blanca  |  Isolated piece of Pastoruri Glacier Thumbnails Cordillera Blanca  |  Pastoruri Glacier with lakes

This part of the tongue of Glaciar Pastoruri has lost direct contact to the proglacial lake. Due to the pronounced retreat of the glacier in the previous years, the chunk of ice in the background has become isolated from the main glacier tongue. Elevation: approx. 5000 m asl.
