Photographer's Note

The Llanganuco Lake (3865 m above sea level) is about 2.5 hours by car from Huaraz. Shortly before the lake there is a control booth of the Huascaran National Park. The lake is spectacularly located inside the park in a glacial vally embedded by the steep walls of the highest mountains of Peru. The lake is surrounded by rare polylepis trees with the lake's turquoise water a result of glacial silt, glow in the midday sun.
