Perhaps the most iconic view of Huayhuash is that with three lakes (Gangrajanca, Siula and Quesillococha) lined below three big mountains, Jirishanca, Yerupaja and Siula Grande.
This may be seen from a viewpoint short above the lakes, on the way to the pass called Siula Punta - a pass so popular that in certain times Maria Muñoz Flores from Queropalca keeps a sort of bar offering beer and juices to trekkers. Note that in this stretch there is litle difference between independent trekkers, walking on their own with more than 20 kg of equipment as I did, and trekkers who hired guides, donkeys and arrieros, since the steep pass is not accessible to animals, who have to take a longer detour via Punta Carnicero.
I will show that wiew later, seeing that Huayhuash is not represented on this site, but for now let me go on with the work outlined in N.26068 - losing the highest of the three lakes and, of course, the threatening "presence" of the big mountains and of the ice blocks regularly falling down from them. That day the most active region was that of the seracs visible here below the Siula, with avalanches reaching at times the Quesillococha - namely, the third, hidden lake, not to be confused with the lake marked with the same name on the other side of the pass.

If this was a competition you would beat us all hands down. Luckily it isn't and we are spoiled with your incredible panos!

Breathtaking ... !!! But you should still remove the traces of the "Lord of the Rings" in the sky, in the original movie there are only three episodes - here already seven ;-) ...

Cheers, Hans-Jörg
