Abra Huamanripa* – 4,879m

Departamento de Ancash, Peru


This is the highest point on the fantastic Pachacoto – Huayllanca road. The name of the high point/pass is open to debate – many maps don’t mark it at all, others call it Abra Yanashalla. However Yanashalla is the pass on the main, paved Huayllanca – Conococha road. Huamanripa is the nearest peak to the pass marked on our Alpenverein maps, so until someone tells us the correct name, we’ve named it after that.
