Description

This 13-day Ojos del Salado volcano ascent will take you up to the highest active volcano in the world!

But don’t worry! Although there are fumaroles around the summit, there have been no eruptions in any historical times.

Ojos del Salado volcano (6893 m) is also the second highest summit in the western hemisphere, just below the famous Mount Aconcagua (6962 m). Immersed in the Puna Catamarqueña, in between Argentina and Chile, its unique sceneries are combined with a vast solitude, because it’s one of the less visited mountains of the Andes.

During this 13 adventurous days we’ll get you properly acclimatized so you enjoy every bit of the journey. We’ll do acclimatization hikes and have rest days to get you strong. Plus, I’ll also take you to an archeological site and a bird watching tour, so you’ll get to learn a bit more about this amazing place. Finally you’ll be able to enjoy some hot springs before starting the climb.

This ascent is quite easy, except for the final section, which and requires ropes and other accessories, but you don’t need to be an experienced climber to accomplish it.

So this 13-day Ojos del Salado Volcano ascent is a great way to discover the beautiful Andes. Please contact me now and we’ll start organizing your trip!

And if you’re looking for other ascent in the Cordillera de los Andes check my Ascent to Cerro El Plata, Mendoza or my Ascent to Bertrand Volcano at 5275m.

About the guide

guide profile img

EPGAMT Mountain guide from Argentina.

The mountain is my workplace and space to enjoy what I like to do ... mountaineering.

I climbedd and promoted various mountains and volcanoes such as: Aconcagua , Ojos del Salado, Pissis , Walter Penck , Incahuasi, Plata, Rincon, Vallecitos , etc.

The mountain can find oneself, to rediscover the essence and every moment. It is a natural place that transmits balance, harmony, tranquility and at the same time, tests us and motivates us to self-improvement. The mountain is accessible to all, just enough to take the first step ... we offer a different experience to share.
