Photographer's Note

3rd day of our trek in the cordillera de Vilcanota. This was an acclimatation day, we had a walk up to a pass in front of South face of the Ausangate. Altitude from this point of view was, I guess, over 4800 meters.

The Nevado Ausangate with its 6374 meters is the highest mountain of Vilcanota. It was also a sacred mountain ("Apu") for the Incas.

If you have some good eyes you can see the white mess tent of our camp just under the small laguna on the left.
