Ascent to Domuyo Volcano in 5 days
I climbed Domuyo with Benjamín few days ago, it was amazing! Benja, and his assistant Martín, were very clever and professional handling a group in which the members had different levels of experience and training. Besides, they know the area and the mountain very well, so we were able to make it to the summit! I definitely recommend Benja as a guide in Patagonia, he made us feel very safe at all moments, and helped us discover a fantastic place.
Soaring 4,702 meters above sea level, the Domuyo volcano is actually the highest summit in the picturesque and remote region of Patagonia. Its rough and rugged character display its impressive and aggressive nature. The name Domuyo actually comes from the indigenous Mapuche, which roughly translates as “to tremble and grumble”, referring to its shaky history.
