Cemetery hill, remembrance for some of the thousands of people killed when the original town of Yungay was destroyed on 31 May 1970: an earthquake had triggered a rock-ice fall from the N summit of Nevado Huascarán which evolved into a debris avalanche that jumped over a hill and almost completely covered the town.
