Located in west-central Argentina in the province of Neuquen is the striking Domuyo stratovolcano. It rises to 4,702 meters (15,427ft) and is the highest peak in Patagonia. That’s why it is often nicknamed the Roof of Patagonia. The first recorded ascent of the volcano was all the way back in 1903 by Lino del Valle Carvajal. While its last erupted is still unknown.
The region receives a mostly continental climate with cool temperatures given its high altitude.
Visit during the summer months between December and March for ideal mountain climbing conditions.
