Description

Would you like to climb the highest volcano in the world under expert guidance? Then join me! Let’s reach the summit of Ojos del Salado together!

Ojos del Salado (6893m) is in the Chilean city of Copiapó and the Argentine province of Catamarca. It stands at the most arid and desert area of ​​the Andes, a broad plateau called the South American Altiplano.

First climbed in 1937, this impressive peak holds several records: it is the highest volcano in the world, the second highest in America, the highest mountain in the Chilean Andes and the second in the Argentine Andes after Aconcagua (6962m)!

For this 12-day expedition, we will meet in Fiambala. After some acclimatization days on the Argentina side, we will head up to the top of Ojos del Salado. Before attempting the summit, we will spend the last night in the César Tejos Hut, at an altitude of 5900m.

Please note that this expedition does not require previous mountaineering experience. However, you should have a good fitness level!

So, if you want to live an unforgettable mountaineering experience in the Andes, please get in touch with me. Let’s conquer the summit of Ojos del Salado!

I can also take you to the top of Incahuasi, in Argentina. Check it out here.
