Thanks to Eloy G. Boulton for adding this peak.

Pan de Azúcar means Sugar Bread, and that is the appearance of the white sandy slopes of this mountain. The easiest way to approach it is from the location of La Culata (aprox. 3000 m.), near Mérida city. From La Culata, after a 5 hrs. trek, you arrive at Valle de Los Duendes (aprox. 4150 m.), a beautiful place to camp. Next day, early in the morning, start your way to the summit...enjoy it, but most of all, enjoy descending over the white sands!
