The Precarious Glacier of Punta Cuyoc, Huayhuash, peru

This is the highest pass, at 5000m on this trek - appropriately named Punta Cuyoc as it skirts narrowly within the reach of the crumpling glacier of Mt. Cuyoc(5550m). On the descent the thundering sound of constant avalanches seems more ominous as the trail brings one suspiciously close to the path of some of the icefall - and at one particular point the avalanche and debris did engulf part of the trail but the locals seem to be completely oblivious to the danger and carry on regardless - I foolhardily follow as well .
