El Plomo Expedition (5.424 masl)


Live the experience of knowing the sacred mountain of the Incas

 

Destino: Cerro el Plomo

Región: Metropolitana

País: Chile

HISTORY

One of the highest peaks visible from Santiago, alongside Cerro Leonera. Like the Tórtolas mountain, El Plomo is considered an “Apu Wamani” in Inca culture, which means “guardian of the valley”.

In February of 1954 one of the most important discoveries in the field of archaeology was made here: the Plomo Mummy, a nine-year-old boy who was sacrificed to transform the mountain into a sacred space and thereby transcend time.

The first ascent reported by climbers was in 1896, by Gustavo Brandt y Rodolfo Luck.
