A high, easy and quite popular peak on the Chile/Bolivia border. The above estimate is from SRTM data, the actual height may probably closer to 5940m. On the summit there are some Inca ruins, including various raised terraces and a few small walls. These date from the time of the Incas when the mountain was used for religious purposes and sacrifices and were the first such ruins to be properly recorded. There is also a spectacular crater lake.
