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.

The IGM Tupungato topo map of the area is showing an elevation of 6570 meters for the South Summit elevation. My Garmin GPS indicated an elevation of 6574 meters, so I would tend to think the map is pretty close with a correct elevation.
