Cerro el Plomo

History

The Incas climbed to El Plomo’s summit periodically in the 15th century and for many years after this, mountaineers and prospectors found traces of Incan presence on El Plomo.  In 1896, this distinctive mountain was officially summited by Gustav Brandt and Rudolph Lucke. 1954 saw the discovery of a shrine and the body of a child that had been sacrificed by the Incas in honour of the Sun God, Inti.
