Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain[edit]

Hola, I would like to write a new article about this super beautiful Rainbow Mountain (wow!!!) in Peru. From googlemaps I get this GPS coordinates: -13.869534, -71.30296. Then I found that this place is just on the north side of Hatun Rit'iyuq mountain, and I guess that probably the "Rainbow Mountain" (in spanish: "Montana Arcoiris" or "Cerro Colorado") is just a touristic name for it. So maybe it's better to improve the Hatun Rit'iyuq than create a new Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain (it could be a redirect). What do you think? (Please ping me) --Holapaco77 (talk) 08:52, 17 December 2016 (UTC)

@Holapaco77:It appears that Vinicunca or possibly Willkacunca is the Quechua name for the place, which is distinct from the peak of Hatun Rit'iyuq. Whether you want to start a new article or not is up to you. However, it makes no sense to mix the original Quechua name with the newly invented English name, even as a redirect. Finding reliable sources on the Internet for this place seems challenging. Cobblet (talk) 16:20, 17 December 2016 (UTC)

Draft:Disability in Peru collaborator wanted[edit]

I'm looking for a collaborator to join me in working on Draft:Disability in Peru. As I don't know Spanish I'm limited to using only sources in English. Perhaps you can help find and use sources published in Peru itself. The draft's talk page contains a list of possible sources that I have found so far.

Víctor M. Marroquín[edit]

Could someone from WP:PERU take a look at Víctor M. Marroquín? The article is not very well sourced and has been that way for quite sometime now. I have not been able to find any better sources online, but it's possible that there are better sources in Spanish. I did find, but that's nothing more than an interview and not sufficient to show WP:GNG or WP:PROF. I've been looking for sources for a while now, but I figured I try asking here before bringing the article to AfD. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 07:08, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Is this Wikiproject dead?[edit]

It looks like a lot of the participants haven't been active on Wikipedia for a while... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Furicorn (talkcontribs) 22:29, 15 July 2017 (UTC)


Out of 1838 districts of Peru less than 1% namely 16 don't have the word "district" in the title of the article. One needs DAB. (talk) 03:40, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
