The Puya Raymondii, "Queen of the Andes", largest among all Bromeliads (that is, a huge pineapple...), grows only in very circumscribed places of the Peruvian and Bolivian Andes. The present 360° shows one of its major stands, in Quebrada Pumapampa. For one day let me also show the appendix Einzelbild.

Good old photographer's rule:
Don't show an Einzelbild without the moon!

Einzelmoon, of course...

Gorgeous landscape, flora and motif, Alberto ... but again the "rings" in your panorama ... I've marked one - could you solve this problem?

Cheers, Hans-Jörg

Hans-Jörg, Kreise? Das sind ganz gewöhnliche Sensorflecke, die Alberto in Windeseile entfernen könnte.
Alberto, das Einzelbild ist eigentlich nicht erfoderlich.

Jetzt verbessert.

The plant is a magnificent endemism of the Andes. In my opinion, it deserved the detail.

Se segui il link trovi tanti dettagli e tanta roba!
Il nome poi, essendo di un italiano, sarebbe Raimondi, ma in Perú si incontra piú spesso la lezione Raymondi, specie nel nome delle vie - anche nelle cittadine piú sperdute se ne trova sempre una dedicata.

Lovely surprise... 25years ago I took a humble non-panoramic low quality photo capturing the valley & mountains that are in the middle of your pano (with the plants in the foreground) from the same spot - It was a 'touristy' day trip from Huaraz to Nevado Pastoruri and we made a stop to admire these plants.

Probably you photographed this sort of Grossglockner: http://bit.ly/2qqa3VU

So: your previous stops were at Carpa - Laguna Patococha and at the Agua Gasificada. Your next stop would be at the Pintura Rupestre.
Of the Pastoruri I have several 360° from different summits and in different lights, but the glacier has still few years of life. Beyond Pastoruri the southern Cordillera Blanca gives its best, with the wild traverse Huarapasca - Huamanripa - Yanashalla, where you ride all the time between 4600 and 5000 metres. But the track is very rough there.
