The Artesonraju (Paramount) is one of the most beautiful mountains of the Cordillera de los Andes. This beautiful icy pyramid is located in the Peruvian Cordillera Blanca, between the gorges of Santa Cruz in the north and of Paron in the South. Nowadays, it has become quite popular, especially for its two main trails. The first is the northern one, accessible from the gorge of Santa Cruz and the other one by the southern route, accesible by the Paron lake, located at the end of the gorge that holds the same name. This one is famous for its great icy hike of approximately 900m of slope with an inclination of 45 to 55°.
