The Pastoruri is a clear example of glacial retreat.
Along the path to the remains of the glacier one finds the marks of the different positions reached by it at subsequent stages.
Here I am not far from the 2015 mark.

Plane gerade unsere diesjährige Radtour. Die 650 km von Veitshöchheim nach Hamburg würde dir ein müdes Lächeln abringen. Kein Wunder angesichts dieser Bilder.

Herzliche Grüße,

Kleinste Steigungen mit Rad und Gepäck auf fast 5000 m können doch nur mit zusätzlichem Sauertoff aus der Flasche bewältigt werden, die aber auch noch wiegt, oder man schiebt.

Seeing this view makes me think this platform should have a "Sad face" button, too, just like facebook. I traveled to Pastoruri in 1994, by tour bus (a small bus) from Huaraz, and then enjoyed the great scenery. For me this may have been the highest altitude i have set foot on, perhaps with Chacaltaya, near La Paz (Bolivia).

I wasn't that much into photography at the time and only traveled with a dirt cheap camera, so as not to attract any pickpockets. In hindsight, a foolish decision of mine - but i still cherish my souvenir pictures from that trip.
