Highlights

 
     

    I have the pleasure to invite you to one magnificent high point of The Northern Andes of Argentina: the Nevado de Chañi, in the border between the provinces of Jujuy and Salta.

    It will be an ascent of 6 amazing days across one of the three possible trails to get to the Nevado de Chañi: the one that joins the Route 52 with the legendary Route 40 towards the main town of San Antonio de Los Cobres.

    Then, the trekking adventure will make us reach up to 5.950 meters, from where we can admire other five summits that surround the Nevado de Chañi. I can assure it will be an unforgettable viewpoint. During the entire trip you will also enjoy good moments with local people and learn more about their customs, lifestyles, humility and kindness.

    About the Guide

     
     

    AAGM Mountain Guide from Argentina.

    I was born in Catamarca province, land of 6000m peaks (los seismiles), such as Pissis and Ojos del Salado.

    I now live in Tilcara, Jujuy, located in the 'Quebrada de Humahuaca' a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    I guide mountaineering, trekking, horse riding and multi adventure trips in Argentina's North and North-West region.

    When guiding, my objective is to provide confidence and safety to my clients, and by the end of the trip to say goodbye as friends.

    What People are Saying about David A. Torres

     

    I hired David Torres for a full-day mountain hike at least 2 months in advance. Without explanation or warning, he sent in his place a man with a recently broken ankle who uses a cane to walk! My entire day of \"hiking\" was a 3k slow walk on a flat trail. I have attempted to get a refund, but the company has refused to communicate with me. The replacement guide told me David had another trip at the same time as mine, and chose the other, more lucrative, trip.

    The trip was amazing. The climb especially. Not being used to horse riding it was quite exhausting but overall we were very satisfied with how the day went.
