    This fantastic itinerary across the Atacama highlands, all the way up to the summit of the Licancabur volcano, is a must for all mountaineers. Over these 10 days, I will guide you across unique landscapes along the broad area between Chile and Bolivia. A true South-American tour!

    Some of the highlights of this program are the beautiful Chilean village of Copiapó, the Laguna Verde area in the Bolivian Potosí, and the ascent to the Licancabur Summit.

    This Andean program includes four days designed for a better acclimatization around Laguna Verde. Some of the special acclimatization tours are the ascent to, or tour around, Laguna Verde (4,350 m), and the ascent of Mt Mulas Muertas (5,910 m / 19,390 ft).

    The ascent to the Licancabur Summit (5,960 m / 19,553 ft) is particularly special. This volcano is located towering above Laguna Verde in the Southwest Bolivian Altiplano. The crate at its summit is considered one of the highest lakes in the world. Its altitude and impressive character make it a memorable climb.

    Take a look at the detailed itinerary for this Andean program below.

    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.
