The 5500-6000m peaks of the Andes  - page 3

This page last updated 5th January 2016.

Andean peaks numbers 301-395 (peaks from 5630m down to 5500m) are on this page.

For peaks from 101 to 200 (5780-5999m) see our 5500-6000m peaks page1

For peaks from 5630m to 5780m see our 5500-6000m peaks page 2

For 5000-5499m see the links from our  5000m peaks Index  page

The top 100 in the Andes see our 6000m peaks page

Heights in red below have been revised due to the SRTM data. Many thanks to Jonathan de Ferranti (2005) and Eberhard Jurgalski (2013)  for help with this.

This list © 1999 - 2016 John Biggar. This list is now believed to be about 99% accurate i.e. there are probably 10 or so peaks not included that should be and perhaps one or two included that should not be. All heights are in metres.

We also now have a list of peaks on this website in alphabetical order


The criterion used to select this list is a re-ascent height of 400m from any higher peak. 

The grid co-ordinates are included to help distinguish un-named and similarly named peaks. They are for the top right (i.e.NE) corner of the latitude-longitude block in which the mountain appears, this is the usual convention on South American maps.

Peaks in brackets have uncertain re-ascent.

In many areas of South America, particularly in parts of Argentina, the heights of many peaks are subject to debate. Some peaks having quoted heights that differ by 300m or more. The heights given here are thought to be the most widely accepted figures, many are taken from the most recent Argentine surveys.

The peaks are arranged in groups of ten.  An asterisk by the date of first ascent denotes a peak known to have had a Pre-Columbian ascent, or on which ruins have been found high up. The date of the first modern ascent is also given when known. Dates in brackets indicate a disputed first ascent.

*****   Notes :-

1 - Mitapunta - vies for prominence with the very similar height of Pariaucro just to the north.
 

Peaks from 5000-5500m   My current best guess (probably about 98-99% accurate) is that there are a total of  858  peaks in the Andes over  5000m.
