Would you like to enjoy a multi-day adventure in the Andes? Then join me on a thrilling 12-day program to 3 stunning Chilean summits: El Plomo, Marmolejo and San José. 

At 5,434 m, El Plomo is the largest peak that you can see from Santiago. Marmolejo, at 6,108 m, is higher, but further south, and will be the second peak we climb on this adventure. Just 9km away is our third summit, the  San José volcano, which boasts an altitude of 5,856 m. On this adventure, we will get to explore each of these beautiful mountains in Chile.

Each peak will take us approximately 3 days to climb.  It will be a big challenge that will put our skills to test. Tackling these three Andean giants will require you to have some mountaineering experience and a good fitness level. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you on the way and we will have some extra days scheduled into the program in case we face any delays. You can find a detailed outline of the itinerary below.

So, are you ready for an unforgettable adventure in the Chilean Andes? Then book your place now and start planning your mountaineering trip to the top of El Plomo, Marmolejo and San Jose!
