360 panoramic - The Twin Lakes of Pumacocha Lake (Peru)


The Twin Lakes of Pumacocha Lake

Nestled at the foot of the southwestern face of massif Ausangate, Pumacocha Lake, also known as the Jatun Pucacocha lake is actually made up of two smaller lakes separated by a thin ridge of scree.
The red tent in the distance belongs to another group of hikers.
