From the author: The Huayhuash Circuit is one of the most beautiful trek in the world, made famous by the film “Touching the Void”. Here the view is taken just about 45 mins away from the Pass of the same name (I think)  towards a series of lakes, where there should be three but only two are really in view here. On the left are Carnicero (5960m), Siulá (6344m), Yerupajá (6635m) and Jirishanca (6094m) respectively. The camp site for the ascent to the summits are on the other side of the mountains.
