Panoramic view of Glaciar Pastoruri
WI_pe071_101.jpg Pastoruri Glacier with proglacial lakeThumbnailsCordillera Blanca  |  Nevado Mururaju

Panoramic view of the proglacial environment at approx. 5000 m asl. Glaciar Pastoruri (background) has experienced an accelerated degree of retreat during the previous years, so that the chunk of ice in the right background of the image has become isolated from the main glacier tongue. In 1970 the area of the proglacial lake shown in the right foreground was still occupied by the glacier.
