Peru: Laguna Parón

Panoramic photo by Arroz Marisco. Click the image to open the interactive version.

This turquoise blue lake, largest of all the glacial lagoons in the cordillera sits deep inside the valley between towering Huandoy (6395m) to the south and Aguja (5840m) to the north. There is no public transport to the area and I was lucky to have hitched a ride by a team of canoeists heading there. The almost perfect pyramidal shape mountain at the end of the lake is Pirámide de Garcilaso (5885m), with Chacraraju (6112m) sitting right next to it.
