Altiplano and Cordillera Blanca / Huascarán

Altiplano

Even on the high altiplano, vegetation manages to grow.

Cordillera Blanca

The Cordillera Blanca, or White Mountains, from the Callejon de Huaylas with Cerro Huascarán in the background.

"Huascarán and Alpamayo, are part of the highest tropical mountain range in the world, known as the White Mountain Range ("Cordillera Blanca"), not just due to its perpetual snow caps but also for the chemical constitution of its quartz and felspar rocks."
Huaraz, Peru.
