The Ampay National Sanctuary was established on July 23, 1987, through Law (D.S.) N-042-84-AG, it is located in the department of Apurimac, with a surface of 3,635.50  hectares.

The Ampay National Sanctuary protects the largest forests of intimpa trees in the Peruvian highlands. The intimpa is Peru's only native only conifer species, and the dense forests shelter many species of wildlife, largely birds. Ampay Sanctuary also features a series of glacial lakes and crystal-clear streams flowing down from the majestic snow-capped peak of Mount Ampay, which dominates the region and lends its name to this protected area.
