Categories: Geologic Formations, Nature & Parks
Get acquainted with Peru's snowy peaks at Pastoruri Glacier. Don't miss the chance to get an up close experience with a glacier here, as it is the only one accessible by road in the entire world. The glacier has lost over 15% of its ice mass over the past 35 years, while the planet in that time has seen ten of its hottest years on record. Despite the chilly temperature, visitors are advised to take plenty of water along with them due to the glacier being 5,250 m (17,200 ft) above sea level. Arrange to visit Pastoruri Glacier and other attractions in Huascaran National Park using our Huascaran National Park vacation planner.
