The Blue Edge of Pastoruri Glacier
Despite its headache-inducing altitude of 5,250m a.s.l. Pastoruri, a cirque glacier measuring about 4 km in length is readily accessible along a bumpy highway about 3 hrs from the departmental capital of Huaraz to its north. The glacier has now broken into two separate parts over the last 4 years with the smaller part rapidly melting away to a thin ice cap only, the larger part pictured here retreating to leave behind a tarn at its snout. It is envisaged that the entire glacier would disappear completely within the next 5 to 10 years. The glacier edge has been cordoned off as the structure heavily crevassed is becoming unstable.
