Overview
Alpamayo mountain is one of the most beautiful ice faces of the Andes. It is located more remotely than most other peaks in Cordillera Blanca, as the hike to the BC takes 2-3 days (see below). In the first map of Cordillera Blanca from 1932 Alpamayo was not indicated at all! Eventually it was climbed for the first time in 1957 by a German expedition via the N ridge. Nowadays Alpamayo mountain is well-known and was even elected the most beautiful mountain in the world. It is not the difficulty that inspires the climbers but it’s magnificent setting among the everlasting snowcapes of the Cordilliera Blanca, 6000 meters above sea level.
