Cerro Lipez

Cerro Lipez (also Cerro Lipez) is a stratovolcano in the Cordillera de Lipez in Sud Lipez province of Potosi Department in southwestern Bolivia. It has twin peaks and rises to 5,929 m. On some maps it is incorrectly labeled as Nuevo Mundo. Nuevo Mundo is in fact hundreds of kilometres to the northeast and five hundred metres shorter. The confusion came in part from a misidentification of the height of Nuevo Mundo.
