Location: Nameless summit (5165 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto
Area: Peru      Date: 15-08-2019
From a summit above the Portachuelo de Llanganuco, Cordillera Blanca.

The Llanganuco was the last among my seven successive crossings of the Cordillera Blanca:
1) Cahuish (4450), by bicycle, on asphalt and with summit tunnel;
2) Gara Gara (4830) and Osoruri (4860), by foot;
3) Punta Unión (4760) and Alto de Pucaraju (4640, pano N.26409 ant others), by foot;
4) Paso del Mojón (4320, pano N.26211), by bicycle, mainly on asphalt;
5) Yanashalla (4689, pano N.2944) and Huarapasca (4780), on dirt road
6) Punta Olimpica (4890, pano N.27578), by bicycle, asphalt and summit tunnel, with visit on a stony track to the old pass;
7) Portezuelo de Llanganuco (4787), dirt road, endless but worth the effort.

Incredible Beautiful !! for the riddle … is at least the country correct ???
2019/08/22 11:52 , Christoph Seger
Tajikistan is simply my default for riddles, as is Vatican for Marzulli...
2019/08/22 12:01 , Pedrotti Alberto
Welcome back & what a pano!
... spontaneously i thought of the country once feared for its Shining Path. Instead there appears to be a shining new road. If I'm right I may have visited that little mountain lake 25 years ago. But I might be totally wrong .

The road construction was initiated in 1983.
It is in a terrible state...
2019/08/22 15:01 , Pedrotti Alberto
Unglaublich diese Szenerie.
2019/08/22 18:09 , Heinz Höra
Still, could it be that you were in a white mountain range - and behind the lakes we can see a piece of the smaller black mountain range?
2019/08/22 18:51 , Augustin Werner
Indeed, you understood perfectly.
Nobody other seems to be interested, but in spite of this I do not think that this summit (5165 m GPS) is such a bad place...
Was the lake that you visited named by a number?
Cheers, Alberto.
2019/08/22 19:14 , Pedrotti Alberto
we are interested, but some of us have a daytime job ....
2019/08/22 19:21 , Christoph Seger
I am somehow convinced, that you are somewere in the Karakorum Range. I just check the Nun Kun massiv for peak similarities ...
2019/08/22 19:24 , Christoph Seger
Be careful that Augustin's Shining Path needs not to be a Buddhist path - apart that the Nun Kun lies perhaps already in a mainly islamic area.
2019/08/22 19:33 , Pedrotti Alberto
As far as I can remember the lake had a name starting with Llan ... - I visited by minibus and didn't go any further

2019/08/22 19:35 , Augustin Werner
:-)) solved I guess ...
2019/08/22 19:39 , Christoph Seger
And -9.039911 -77.590450 is the Aufnahmestandort...
The numeric lake is the one behind the flag, Laguna 69, now destination of a very popular tourist package. That is why I was asking about it.
2019/08/22 19:43 , Pedrotti Alberto
Great Stuff Alberto.
I didn't know of & didn't go to Lake 69 then.
Looking at the road on Google Maps/Street View i realize it's only shining in the bright sun but otherwise isn't in shiny condition.
I am looking forward to a whole great series of serious panos!
2019/08/22 19:51 , Augustin Werner
So that time you visited Laguna Chinancocha, near which I passed an unplanned night, wrapped only in the Salewa aluminium emergency bag, in order to climb the pass again the following day - August 15, Ferragosto. Namely, crossing it on August 14 I had found all the mountains wrapped in clouds (not Salewa).
After the two ascents I had lost nearly completely my voice due to the amount of dust that I had eaten. I am still waiting to recuperate it fully...
Cheers, Alberto.
2019/08/22 19:58 , Pedrotti Alberto
Great place, great pano.
2019/08/22 21:42 , Giuseppe Marzulli
Perfect Mountain Scenery!
2019/08/22 22:49 , Peter Brandt
The tattered flag bothers me a bit, but otherwise the landscape is nice and the presentation is clear and sharp with natural colors.
2019/08/23 17:21 , Jörg Braukmann
I was already fascinated about your impressions on FB and curious about the first panorama - a dreamlike panorama, thanks for sharing, Alberto !!!

Cheers, Hans-Jörg
2019/08/28 17:33 , Hans-Jörg Bäuerle
Thank you - the series will go on, maybe with some Huayhuash, such that the Betrachter will not get bored!
Cheers Alberto.

Has it ever been cloudy during your stay in Peru? Simply incredible...
2020/01/22 09:43 , Johannes Ha
Yes. And it happened for example the previous day, when I crossed the Llanganuco in cloudy conditions. Let me put the competing Schlechtwetterpano in the queue for the next week, because I like it very much.
