The Dumayo Volcano is a colossal and majestic peak. Reaching its summit is a considerable challenge due to its hostile weather. But the views we’ll get from the top, make it totally worth it.

We’ll meet in Chos Malal and head to the Vega camp (2,400m) where we will start our slow ascent through the valley until we reach base camp (3,100 meters). From there, we’ll continue a couple hours to another camp at 3,400 meters.

Then on the third day of our expedition, we’ll begin trekking before the sun rises, at 3:00 am. The way to the top is located at a quiet trail that rises slowly. And overall, this last patch does not pose any technical challenge. However, when we are at 4,000 meters, we’ll reach the most delicate sector. Due to the terrain’s conditions and steepness, we’ll have to use the technical equipment. But, after that step, the path continues with no further difficulty. The total ascent to reach the summit will take us about 7 or 8 hours. And, upon completion we’ll descend through the same road back to our camp and rest.

After the summit day, and a good night sleep, we’ll head back to the starting point of our adventure, where a vehicle will be waiting for us to drive us to Aguas Calientes. Here, we’ll find a natural river with warm water that reaches 37ºC. Thus, it will be a real treat to swim on its water. Finally, after relaxing there for a bit, we’ll return to the cottages where we’ll have an exquisite dinner and relax some more.

So, if you are up for this mountaineering adventure in the Patagonia, just send me a request. It will be my pleasure to guide you to the top of Dumayo.

I also guide this 2-day ascent to the Tromen Volcano, if you want to keep exploring Argentina.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
