Cerro Cinco Hermanos, The Five Brothers, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina

Photo of Monte Cinco Hermanos, The Five Brothers, Ushuaia, Argentina

As we left Ushuaia and sailed down the Beagle Channel, one of the highlights was the sight of Cerro Cinco Hermanos (or Monte Cinco Hermanos, The Five Brothers, 1280m). Along with Monte Olivia, these rugged peaks rise high above Ushuaia but are often shrouded in clouds. We were fortunate to see them clearly as we departed Tierra del Fuego and motored down the Beagle Channel toward the Southern Ocean and the Falkland Islands.
