Tupungato is a large stratovolcano that straddles the South American border between Chile and Argentina. Standing at 6,570 meters above sea level, Tupungato is the twelfth-highest mountain in the whole Andes mountain range. It stands approximately 62 miles south of Aconcagua, which at 6,960 meters above sea level, is the highest peak in the Andes, and the highest in both the Southern and Western Hemispheres.
The weather on Tupungato is very cold given its high altitude, with its slopes cloaked in snow.
Visit during the warmer months between December and February for quality mountain climbing conditions.
