If you had to choose between black and white, which would you choose?
The Cordillera Blanca (White Mountain Range) is the second highest mountain range in the world, trailing only the Himalayas, and features thirty three major peaks over 5,500 meters (18,045 ft) tall in an area 21 kilometers (13 mi) wide and 180 kilometers (112 mi) long.
People come from all over the world to climb the mountains in the Cordillera Blanca, as well as hike the trails below the peaks and view the stunning scenery.
The Cordillera Negra (Black Mountain Range) is a parallel range of mountains that is almost as tall, but due to its location blocking the warm winds from the desert and the Pacific Ocean, remains devoid of snow.
So, if you had to choose between black and white, which would you choose?
