The Peruvian Andes

In Peru the Andes form a set of mountain ranges that cross our land from south to north, exhibiting different geologic features of shape, structure and composition.

The Andes occupy 32% of the country, with about 20 different mountain ranges. Two stand out for their unique form and profile: The Cordillera Blanca, and the Cordillera Huayhuash. These ranges host two of the highest summits of Peru: Huascaran at 6.768m and Yerupaja at 6.679m respectively.

The Andes help feed rivers and streams arcoss Peru, and contain an enormous amount of water gained from the mountains as a product of rain or glacial thaw over many millions of years.
