If you are looking for an ascent to a great peak with incredible landscapes in the Andes, then this program to Pili Volcano in Chile is perfect for you!

Acamarachi Volcano, also known as Pili Volcano, is a stratovolcano situated in the Antofagasta region of Chile, near San Pedro de Atacama. This peak in the Andes lies at 6,046 meters above sea level and used to be a sacred sanctuary for the Incas 500 years ago.

The meeting point of this trip will be San Pedro de Atacama. On day 1, we’ll go to the Salado and Grande rivers. On day 2, we’ll visit the little village of Machuca and head to the Blanco geyser. Then, on day 3, we’ll approach the base camp of the volcano. Day 4 will be our summit day. After a long climb, we’ll contemplate the crater of Pili Volcano and return to base camp. Finally, on day 5, we’ll return to San Pedro de Atacama and say goodbye.

Because this is a challenging climb, it is important to have a very good fitness level to participate. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you all the way!

Reach the summit of this amazing volcano and enjoy trekking through the beautiful Chilean wilderness. If you wish to join this program, send the request and make your reservation now.

Also, if you wish to explore this area further, you can take a look at these programs in Río Salado and Licancabur Volcano that I also lead.
