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.
