The Incahuasi Volcano is located in the Puna of Catamarca, very close to the San Francisco Pass, which connects Argentina with the Chilean Atacama Region. The starting point of this mountain climbing adventure is usually Fiambalá, about 200 km from the base of the mountain. The ascent itself takes between 3 and 4 days. However, it’s important to consider some extra days for acclimatization, since it is a very high volcano (6640 meters). Nearby you can do some warm up treks in Pastos Largos (3300 m), Las Grutas (4000 m), Cerro Falso Morocho (4500 m) and in the Bertrand Volcano, at 5300 meters. As you gain altitude, your body will also feel more comfortable and ready to go through the 6000-meter line towards the major goal: the Incahuasi summit.
