Chopicalqui is the fourth highest mountain in the Cordillera Blanca. It is located immediately northeast of Peru's highest mountain, Huascaran (22,204 ft.). Though overshadowed by Huascaran in height, Chopicalqui is a similarly large mountain, both high and massive, with steep and narrow glacial ridges.
