More Info

Sprawling across northern Chile as well as going into Bolivia and Peru, the Atacama desert is a great mountain climbing destination. Witner (June to September) is the best time to come as the temperatures are not oppressively hot, but most guides offer trips year-round.

In addition to the aforementioned peaks, there are many others that are just beckoning to intrepid climbers. Among the most popular around the small city of San Pedro de Atacama are Sairecabur (5.971 meters) and Volcan Lascar (5.592 meters).

Over on the Bolivian side of the border, even farther north is Sajama National Park. In addition to being home to Nevado Sajama, the park is full of other incredible peaks to climb as well. Taking a week or more to see them all is highly recommended.

We had an incredible time on our trip! Gaston was amazing, and we were very fortunate to have him as our guide. He has spent a lifetime hiking in Chile, and it reflected in his planning and preparation for the trip. With his help we were able to push to the top, and make awesome memories along the way!

I was really disappointed with Casa de Guias. It was not a terrible experience because Casa de Guias had found a wonderful guide and assistant although they did not know them (allmountain guide). As to Explore -Share I don´t intent to buy anything. I will write a full description of what happened by e-mail.
