The 5500-6000m peaks of the Andes - page 2

This page last updated 5th January 2016.

Andean peaks numbers 201-300 (peaks from 5780m down to 5630m) are on this page.

The top 100 in the Andes are on our  6000m peaks page

For peaks from 101 to 200 see our  5000m peaks page 1

For peaks from 301 to 395 see our  5000m peaks page 3

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

This list Š 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.

Heights in red below have already been revised due to the SRTM data. Many thanks to Jonathan de Ferranti (2004) and  Eberhard Jurgalski (2013 thru to 2015)  for help with this.

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.

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.

This list and all photos unless stated  Š 2001-2016 John Biggar.

*****   Notes :-

220  - Antisana - Highest SRTM cell is only 5692m, so it may be considerably lower.
225  - Gigante - the neighbouring peak of Jachacunocollo is quite likely to be higher.
231 - Tunshu - Highest SRTM cell is just 5667m so may well be lower than this height.

234 - Colon and Bolivar. An ANDES trip led by John Biggar made an ascent of Pico Colon in December 2015. It was possibly the first ascent of this difficult to access mountain for many years. A GPS reading on the summit, averaged over ten minutes, gave a height of c.5730m for Colon. Bolivar's height will be within a meter or two of this. either up or down, we could not tell.!
