Description

This 9-day program I am offering means a good opportunity to get to know the Atacama Desert and the High Altiplano in both sides of the Chilean-Bolivian border.

With a gradual acclimatization process we’ll hike through the Lauca National Park (Chile) and the Sajama National Park (Bolivia). Furthermore, we’ll climb two amazing summits: the Cerro Huani Huani and finally, the Nevado Acotango.

The main reasons why I think you should come with me are:

  • You will walk in the heart of the Central Andes;

  • The Andean landscapes will make you fall in love with the region;

  • You will conquer the 6052-meter-high Acotango summit!

It will be also a cultural tour since you will visit some native communities, like the Quechua and Aymara ethnicities. It’s a good chance to learn more about their history and lifestyles. The same with the native flora and fauna of the place, which is unique in the region. Vicuñas, foxes, guanacos and vizcachas are some of the most interesting species.

As a big culmination of this trip, I will help you conquer the Acotango peak. The ascent will be pleasant and gentle since you won’t carry any heavy equipment or backpack. All you will need is a good fitness level.

I lead this expedition all year round for groups of 6 guests and up to 12. I have some open groups that you can join if you are on your own. Besides that, I also offer private trips upon request.

So, contact me and so we can discuss the program. I’ll help you organize the best trip according to your wishes. Let’s reach the Nevado Acotango summit together!

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.

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.
