More Info

There are a number of mountains and volcanoes to climb in Catamarca. From the extremely high Ojos del Salado volcano which sits on the border of Argentina and Chile, to the Cerro Incahuasi which sits at 6640 meters. To climb either of these mountains you’ll need first acclimatize. At 6799 meters, Monte Pissis is another great mountain to climb and it’s actually the third highest peak in South America. To acclimatize before attempting these summits, it’s also a good idea to climb smaller peaks like Siete Hermanos (4780m) and Mulas Muertas (5200m).

Personally, was more impressed with the road trip towards the mountain than the mountain itself, but it was definitely worth going. The lunar landscape in this remote area is absolutely awesome. The guide was well prepared, very friendly, and even a surprisingly good cook. The location is as far as you are likely to get from civilisation. The weather was also unusually good. But the mountain is tough and frustrating sliding down every step in the loose gravel and sand. Not everyone\'s cup of tea
