South America, Peru, Cordillera de Huancavelica

Cordillera de Huancavelica. The Oxford University Exploration Club sent a scientific party into the mountainous region between Huancayo and Huancavelica during the months of July and August. The leader, J. K. Marshall, and J. R. Lloyd studied the botany and made a vegetation map of the whole area and made a detailed study of the vicinity of the Laguna Condovay. Mark R. Brewsher mapped the country and with Peruvians climbed five high peaks, of which two, Citac (17,600 feet) and Turoyo (18,030 feet), were first ascents. M. J. Troughton studied the people of the Ayhuicha valley, while R. C. Herrera and S. R. S. Walker carried on geological research.
