That's good information to have. I voted 4 stars on your photo to keep it there. Maybe I'll go back one day. Good work.

Miscellaneous Info: On August 2, 1947, a British Lancaster Bomber(Civilian Version)
crashed somewhere in the Andes while on approach to Santiago. The remains
of the plane were not found until 1998 on Tupungato by climbers.

More information about the mystery can be found here.

Pedro, I think you mistakenly entered Tupungato's coordinates as degrees.minutes instead of degrees.decimaldegrees. Note that SummitPost displays the coordinates in the latter format. The coordinates -33.22, -69.47 are incorrect, but -33deg22min, -69deg47min converts to -33.37, -69.78, which is about right.
