Acotango Volcano (6054m) 4-day ascent

Acotango Volcano (6054m) 4-day ascent | undefined

Jaime, IFMGA certified mountain guide, takes you to the top of the Acotango volcano, one of the volcanoes in the Sajama National Park, in the Central Andes.

Andes

4 Days

May - Oct


Description

The Acotango volcano lies in the border between Bolivia and Chile. It's part of the Sajama National Park, which hosts other high volcanoes as Sajama and Parinacota. 

I love guiding volcano ascents in the Sajama National Park. The environment in the heart of the Central Andes is unique, definitely worth a visit! Besides, on the Chilean side the region is protected by the Lauca National Park.

The first destination during this tour is Lagunas. It's a town not fat from the volcano, right outside the National Park. Then we will climb to the top of Acotango, on the second day. Besides, we will enjoy the wonderful hot springs.

Did you find this 4-day ascent tempting? Then please get in touch with me! Guiding you up to the Acotango volcano will be my pleasure.

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide from Bolivia.

I organize mountaineering and trekking trips in different regions of Bolivia, and community tourism as well. I spend my free time exploring new destinations and discovering new mountains and cultures in remote regions.

I have more than 20 years of experience working in Cordillera Real, and I live in Tuni, Condoriri. I worked as mule driver, porter, cook, trekking guide assistant, trekking guide, and finally became IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide in 2008.

I made several ascents in Bolivia and neighboring countries like Argentina, Chile and Peru. Some of them: Ojos de Salado, Wallatiri, Urus, Azangate, Huayna potosí, Illimani, Chir oco, Chachacomani, Sajama, Illamapu, Acohoma, Chapi orco, Acotango, Parinacota… These experiences prepared me to organize and guide expeditions.

I like to provide a top level service to people from all around the world, help them get in contact with the local culture, and of course help them reach their objectives in the mountains.

Jaime and his family are very amiable and friendly people. The tour was very well organized and everything exceeded my expectations. The food was very delicious and there was always a vegetarian option if necessary. Next time I come to Bolivia I will be sure to book a tour with Jaime again, thank you!

Jaime is a great guide and I had a excellent trip to Acotango with him. He had great knowledge of the mountain and the food was tasty and fresh the whole trip. He also replayed to all my questions before the trip quickly. Would love to go on another trip with him again!
