Nestled in the Andean High Plateau, straddling Chile and Bolivia and sitting at 6,052 metres, you’ll find Acotango Volcano. This volcano is surrounded by others in the Sajama National Park and is an excellent place for mountain climbing.
The climb to the top of Acotango is not technically challenging, however, there are some quite steep sections. You’ll need the stamina to reach the summit and a good level of fitness. It’s possible to drive to base camp at 4,900 meters and the road remains drivable until around 5,600 meters, so depending on where you drive to, you can complete the climb in as little as four hours. Make the most of the awesome mountains around like Parinacota and Pomerape.
This region tends to stay cold year round due to the altitude. Expect summer averages of around 22 degrees celsius and winter averages of 15 degrees celsius. The weather in the mountains is considerably colder.
Fly to La Paz and travel via transfer to the volcano's base.
May through October are the best months to walk up. Crampons will still be necessary in this period but skis are not required.
