180° panorama from Cerro Huancapeti
The nearby cairns mark the location of the central summit.
It's actually slightly more than 180°. Roughly speaking, the panorama starts in the northeast and ends in the west. All over the east, some of the glaciated high peaks of the Cordillera Blanca shine in the distance. Some others, like Shacsha and Huantsán on the far, far left, are obscured by clouds.
With the sun coming from the northwest, it's impossible to see, but otherwise the Pacific Ocean should be visible to the west, behind the cairns. It's less than 80km away, there are no high mountain ranges west of the Cordillera Negra and I'm at roughly 5000m!
