  • Esteban from the Nativa agency in Chivay and I went to the source of the Amazonas and then up to vulcano Mismi. It took us about 2 hours to climb up there and the view was just fantastic.  more »

  • In 2001, it was verified that the main headwater of the Amazon River has its glacial source on the Mismi. An expedition of the National Geographic Society discovered that the Qarwasanta stream flowing into Apurímac River originates on the northern slopes of the mountain and then runs its course through other tributaries and rivers to help form the main Amazon River. Brazilian scientists in 2007 confirmed that the headwaters of Apurímac River are the source of the Amazon River was, and pointed at Mismi as the most probable source of the Amazon.[3]
