Description

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.
