The Most Beautiful Mountain in the World!

Alpamayo (Spanish: Nevado Alpamayo) is one of the most conspicuous peaks in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range of the Peruvian Andes. It is a steep (sixty degrees), almost perfect pyramid of ice, one of a number of peaks that compose the Santa Cruz massif, the northernmost massif of the Cordillera Blanca.

Although smaller than many of its neighboring peaks, it is distinguished by its unusual formation and overwhelming beauty. It actually has two sharp summits, North and South, separated by a narrow corniced ridge.
Its name comes from Quechua Allpa = earth Mayu = river: muddy river. On July 1966, on the German magazine "Alpinismus", a photo made by American photographer Leigh Ortenburger, came together with an article resulting from an international sourvey among climbers, photographers, etc, making the choice for Alpamayo as "The Most Beautiful Mountain in the World".

Will, as we can see in the images, it really is the most beautiful mountain. The snow and ice caps covering the moutain, making it like a floor of a heavenly ground. Maybe the gods lived there. .
