Description

The Domuyo Volcano is an imposing mountain from which the Cordillera del Viento is born. It is located in the north of the Patagonian province of Neuquén. With 4707 meters it is the highest mountain of The Patagonia and due to its geothermal activity, the name of this mountain means “it trembles and grumbles” in the Mapuche language.

Domuyo Volcano is also known as “The Patagonia Roof” and we recommend physical training and technical skills to climb it. From its summit we can admire the Southern Cordillera of Mendoza, the Northwest of Neuquen, Chile, the volcanoes Copahue, Antuco, Nevados de Chillán, Tromen and the mountains Campanario and Sierra Nevada. Its hills are full of solfataras as a result of spring waters and geiseres.

The full itinerary of this 6-day trip through the Domuyo Volcano, is here:

DAY 1

Meeting in Chos Malal, driving to Varvarco and night in a lodge (not included)

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.

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.
