Cerro Pissis (6795 m) 15-day guided ascent in Catamarca

Cerro Pissis (6795 m) 15-day guided ascent in Catamarca | undefined

Hernán, an AAGM mountain guide, has an incredible 15-day ascent to Cerro Pissis (6795) to offer you. Venture into the extreme dryness of the desert!


15 Days

Jan - Mar, Dec




Cerro Pissis is an inactive stratovolcano embellishing the Andes range, sitting between La Rioja and Catamarca provinces in Argentina. With its 6795 m is the third highest volcano in the Southern and Western hemispheres and one of the highest in the world.

The wonderful landscapes around are volcanic, with multi-color lava, a few lagoons and a general extreme dryness. The flora is almost none, but its fauna is pretty diverse: vicuñas, guanacos, donkeys, flamingos, condors and many other bird species.

I invite you to admire all that from a height of 6795 m, which we can reach in 15 exciting days. We will begin in Mendoza and travel to Catamarca, where our real adventure will start. It will take us 15 days ascending and descending, and 14 nights camping in the most breathtaking desert landscape.

If you want to spend two weeks in a remote place while ascending an incredible volcano, please sign up. The only pre-requisite to join is to be in good physical condition and to have some experience in mountaineering.

I also offer a 15-day mountaineering program to the highest active volcano in the world: Ojos del Salado (6803m).

Mountain Guide

I love the mountain, and all its sports. It is a place where one can find peace and know in depth. It's my ground wire when I need quiet and silence. I started working as a guide and porter in 2006, I have been working and enjoying the beauty of the mountain for many years.

I am a mountain guide AAGM and UIMLA, founder of Rocamadreaventura, a company dedicated to trekking, climbing in ice / rock, high mountain and skiing. Our company is composed of professional guides in charge of showing people what we love.

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
