Description

The Incahuasi Volcano, with its 6.640 meters, is the 10th highest mountain in the Andes and the second peak of the Puna Catamarqueña, after Llullaillaco.  Incahuasi is also one of the most beautiful mountains of the region and, at that volcano’s foot, we can admire a lake with its vast plain around.

In the zone, we can enjoy the watching of Condors, pink flamingos, vicunas, and foxes.

Below, you can read an itinerary of this Incahuasi Volcano trip.

About the guide

guide profile img

EPGAMT Mountain guide from Argentina.

The mountain is my workplace and space to enjoy what I like to do ... mountaineering.

I climbedd and promoted various mountains and volcanoes such as: Aconcagua , Ojos del Salado, Pissis , Walter Penck , Incahuasi, Plata, Rincon, Vallecitos , etc.

The mountain can find oneself, to rediscover the essence and every moment. It is a natural place that transmits balance, harmony, tranquility and at the same time, tests us and motivates us to self-improvement. The mountain is accessible to all, just enough to take the first step ... we offer a different experience to share.
