The Melting Glacier of Laguna Llaca

Here I am standing right in front of the melting tongue of the combined glacier of Nevados Oschapalca (5,881 m) and Ranrapalca (6,162 m) which feeds the lake of Laguna Llaca behind me.

This glacier has retreated about 1,700 m since the last little ice age in AD 1,850 and the melting has gathered pace in recent years from an average of 7-10 m per year in the 70s to an astonishing 20 m per year since the 90s.
