Tocllaraju is located in the central Cordillera Blanca of Peru. It is a fairly popular peak which rises above the head of the Quebrada Ishinca. Tocllaraju can be climbed in just a few days from the city of Huaraz once you are acclimatised. While almost always quoted at 6034m, digital elevation data indicate that Tocllaraju is probably quite a bit under 6000m high
