List Description

This list is largely based on the work of John Biggar (, who is the world's leading authority on the true elevations of the peaks of the Andes. Given the lack of good large-scale maps in much of South America, he has done an excellent job of compiling information from diverse sources. The cut-off prominence of 400m for this list is the same he uses.

This table here is based on his work, with the addition of independent research on peak latitude-longitudes, range classifications, prominences, and some elevations.
