Ancohuma is the second highest mountain of Bolivia's Cordillera Real. Some measurements have placed it at 21,489 feet (6,550 meters), which surpasses the generally accepted highest mountain, Illimani (21,201 ft.). Ancohuma is located immediately northwest of the capital city of La Paz, in a complex cluster of high icy peaks, many of which exceed 6,000 meters. Illampu is another high peak of this group.
