Those are actually the graves of local miners. They bury above the ground here.

Thanks for the comments.

What you're looking at is actually 2 mountains, in the foreground is Milluni Peak, which is separated from Huayna Potosi. In the background, it is Huayna Potosi but the South/East Face. The main route up this face is called the French route.
Anyway, it is a great photo.

Thanks! Not sure where I got that info from!
I took the picture from the roadside, somewhere near the Tuni area I think.
I'm glad you like it, I think it's one of my best photos ever.
