The peaks of the Patagonian Andes

For 5000m-6000m Andean Peaks further north visit these index pages:-

5000m Peak Lists Index

or for the top 100 in the Andes see our  6000m peaks page

Heights in red below have been revised due to the SRTM data or other recent surveys. Many thanks to Jonathan de Ferranti for help with this.

This list   2003-2016 John Biggar. This list is now believed to be about 90% accurate i.e. there are probably some peaks not included that should be and perhaps a few included that should not be.

All heights are in metres.


The criterion used to select this list is a re-ascent (prominence) height of 400m from any higher peak. 

The grid co-ordinates are included to help distinguish un-named and similarly named peaks. They are for the top right (i.e. NE) corner of the latitude-longitude block in which the mountain appears, this is the usual convention on South American maps.

Peaks in brackets have uncertain re-ascent.

In many areas of South America, particularly in parts of Argentina, the heights of many peaks are subject to debate. Some peaks having quoted heights that differ by 300m or more. The heights given here are thought to be the most widely accepted figures, many are taken from the most recent Argentine surveys.

The peaks are arranged in groups of ten. 


The peaks of the Patagonian Andes

Peaks with a link have an information page or at least a photograph on this website but you may need to use your browsers back button to return to this page.

This page is divided into various chapters geographically from north to south as follows.

PASO DEL MAIPO TO PASO DEL MAULE   All peaks between the Paso del Maipo and Paso del Maule over 3500m. Approx 34-36S

PASO DEL MAULE TO PASO ICALMA  Peaks between Paso del Maule and the Bio-Bio (Paso Icalma), over 2500m Brackets means uncertain but probably enough re-ascent.

ANDEAN LAKE DISTRICT  From the Rio Bio-Bio (Paso Icalma) to the Rio Manso/Bariloche watershed. Peaks over 2000m. Brackets means uncertain but probably enough re-ascent.

CHAITEN From the Rio Manso / Bariloche watershed to the Rio Palena / Rio Tecka watershed. Peaks over 2000m. Names in brackets means uncertain but probably enough re-ascent.

AISEN From the Rio Palena / Tecka watershed south to Lago Buenos Aires and through to Rio Exploradores. Peaks over 2000m Names in brackets means uncertain but probably enough re-ascent.

NORTH PATAGONIAN ICE CAP AREA    This is a side spur west and south of Lago Buenos Aires and north of Lago O'Higgins. Peaks over 2000m Names in brackets means uncertain but probably enough re-ascent.

ZEBALLOS / JEINIMENI AREA Peaks on and near the main watershed and south of Perito Moreno and Lago Buenos Aires and north of Lago San Martin. Peaks over 2000m. Names in brackets means uncertain but probably enough re-ascent.

Sources for heights used in this list and this website 

In areas of South America the heights of some peaks are still subject to debate. Some Argentine peaks have AIGM survey heights that are 300m higher than the Chilean heights. The main areas for which no accurate survey maps exist are the Mercedario to Tupungato area of Argentina and the Patagonian ice-caps area. The heights given on this site are thought to be generally the most accurate figures taken from the following sources. In all areas Neate's book was used when no survey height was available. In the most uncertain areas detailed above confirmation of many heights has been sought from the SRTM 2000 data.

Venezuela and Colombia - Neate, confirmed where possible in Colombia by CIGM 1:100,000

Ecuador - IGM 1:50,000 newest sheet available.

Peru - IGM 1:100,000 sheets. The AV 1930's surveys of the Cordillera Blanca have been used where the PIGM sheets do not give a height (Note - the AV heights are mostly 20-30m higher than PIGM heights)

Bolivia - The AV maps for the Illimani and Ancohuma areas, otherwise BIGM 1:50,000 sheets or 1:250,000 sheets. SRTM data was used to confirm or change many heights in poorly surveyed areas, particularly the Cordillera Lipez.

Argentina - many from Argentine IGM 1:250,000 sheets. However much SRTM data was used to confirm or change many heights in poorly surveyed areas.

Chile and Chile/Bolivia and Chile/Argentina border peaks - Chilean IGM 1:50,000 or 1:250,000 sheets, which are generally much more modern than Argentine surveys in this area. SRTM data was used to confirm or change many heights in poorly surveyed areas.

Patagonia - ChIGM 1:250,000 sheets where possible, Andes Patagonicos sheets for peaks on the icecaps, Fitzroy area and Cord. Darwin with some more important heights confirmed (where possible) by the SRTM data.
