Tropics are often associated with turquoise seas and white sand beaches. However, there are actually glaciers in these latitudes. Perched over 5000 meters high, glaciers are worshipped by local people as gods for thousands of years. But today, those gods are about to disappear. People of the Andes are going to lose part of their soul, and their cultures are already seriously threatened, will erode even more.
