Nevado Salkantay with rock slide scar

WI_pe130_111_519.jpg

S face of Nevado Salkantay (6271 m). The prominent landslide scar in the centre of the scene goes back to 23 February 2020, when a huge chunk of rock and ice broke off, evolving into an avalanche which impacted Laguna Salkantaycocha at the base of the mountain, resulting in a catastrophic glacial lake outburst flood.
