Climbing the Cordillera Blanca
A great way to experience the mountains of the cordillera Blanca.
Two of the main attractions in the Cordillera Blanca are Huascarán, the highest tropical mountain in the world with an altitude of 6768 meters, and Alpamayo, claimed to be the most beatiful mountain in the world (5947m). In the Cordillera Huayhuash, the names Yerupajá and Siulá Grande draw much attention due to the sheer difficulty of scaling their respective peaks of 6634m and 6344m. Each year serious moutaineers arrive, some repeatedly, to test their skills and have a little fun on these and many other mountains. The best kown big wall of the Cordillera Blanca is the Sphinx located on the north side of Quebrada Paron.
