Arica and Parinacota is a region totally opposite to everything that can be found in the south of Chile. We leave behind the dense forests of Colihues and Araucarias, waterfalls and lakes and welcome a high plateau with colorful mountains, salt flats and large volcanoes. A completely different landscape, but equally spectacular and perfect, especially for alpinists and lovers of mountain climbing. There are many interesting goals to achieve: Parinacota and Pomerape (two mythical volcanoes full of sacred value) the Acotango, the Guallatiri and many more peaks.

Why should I choose Chile for my Mountain Climbing adventure?
Cordillera de la Costa
In this region of Chile, more precisely in Cerro Camaraca, the incredible Cordillera de la Costa (Coastal Range) is born. It is an extensive cliff that falls directly to the Pacific Ocean, from an approximate height of 300 meters. This natural wonder is only interrupted by the drainage of the great regional ravines.
Lauca National Park
It is 148 km from Arica, the capital of Arica and Parinacota, and it is called "the jewel of the Altiplano". Its colorful mountains and the imposing volcanoes of more than 6,500 meters high, contrast with the green meadows. This protected area is also home to a great diversity of fauna with more than 130 different species of birds and other animals.
Salt flats of Surire
At more than 4,200 meters above sea level, this salt flat is one of those unique environments that can be found in northern Chile. With its landscapes painted white, the intense blue of its lagoons and the green and yellow tones of its meadows, it is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in the region.
