Cardon cactus (Trichocereus atacamensis ssp. pasacana)

Many of the local guides regard the white-spined cardon cactus (Trichocereus atacamensis ssp. pasacana) as a separate species from the brown-spined, but evidently this is one species that has a way of coming in two varities!

Both have huge white flowers.

Altitude: 3716 metres.

Native range is Bolivia and Argentina.
