Climb the Pomerape volcano (6,280m), 9-day Expedition in the Chilean Altiplano

Pomerape Volcano

Come and enjoy a thrilling 9-day mountaineering expedition that will take you to the summit of the amazing Pomerape Volcano in the Chilean Altiplano with ACGM certified guide Adolfo.



9 Days

Aug, Sep




  • Enjoy a 9-day adventure to the summit of the Pomerape Volcano.
  • Visit and spend the night in the towns of Putre and Parinacota.
  • Climb to the summit of the Guane-Guane peak for acclimatization and views.


The Pomerape Volcano (6,280m) is one of many amazing volcanoes that can be found in Chile. And, on this 9-day trip, you will get to climb to the summit of this magnificent peak.

Neighboring the equally stunning Parinacota volcano (6,376m), the Pomerape Volcano is located in the Chilean-Bolivan Altiplano, right on the Bolivan border. This famous natural area is absolutely breathtaking, and during this adventure, and from the peak’s summit, you will get to enjoy views of the area that you will never forget.

We will be climbing the volcano via its north face. The route is not very difficult, and we will be stopping at different camps, which all offer their own unique set of views. As a result, you don’t have to be a mountaineering expert to enjoy this trip. However, you should be in good physical condition.

Along with the climb of the Pomerape Volcano, there are other great aspects of this trip for you to enjoy. Examples include nights in the towns of Putre and Parinacota, as well as an acclimatization climb of the Guane-Guane peak (5,190m). This climb will take approximately 8 hours, offers some great views and is great preparation for the climb of Pomerape.

An incredible volcano in an incredible area, climbing the Pomerape Volcano is an adventure that will truly take your breath away. To enjoy this trip for yourself, please send a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

Would you like to climb the neighboring Parinacota volcano? If so, you can do so on this trip, which you can also combine with your Pomerape adventure.

About the guide

For more than 20 years I have worked as a guide in Chile. Join me and I´ll be able to show you the wonderful spots that the Andes offer to those who share my passion for big mountains.

I live in Santiago de Chile, the Chilean capital, where there are many options for high altitude ascents, even over 6,000 meters, in close proximity to the city. I also regularly organize trips to the Chilean Altiplano, where there are many mountains over 6000 meters. However, the main attraction of these trips is to witness the intensity and loneliness of the Atacama Desert.

I would love to have the opportunity to share these magical moments with you and help you achieve your goals and dreams.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
