Description

Join me on a 6-day expedition to the peak of the Domuyo Volcano (4,709m).

Located in the province of Neuquen, the Domuyo Volcano is the highest mountain in Patagonia. Thus earning the name, Roof of Patagonia. Because of the vast volcanic landscape, you will see hot springs. You will see geysers. You will even see glaciers.

This adventure will be a great introduction to high altitude climbing. It will also be a challenge. But like any challenge, the harder it is, the greater the reward. And at the peak of the Domuyo Volcano, the reward is incredible.

The expedition will begin in Andacollo. From there we will proceed to the Punta de Camino, where the ascent starts. After that it’s on to Camps 1 and 2 before reaching the peak of the volcano. After basking in the glory of the summit, we will make our way back down to the Punta De Camino, before returning to Andacollo.

Few things in the world can exceed the beauty and wonder of a volcano. The Domuyo Volcano is no exception. Its altitude may intimidate you, but the prizes offered at the top will truly stimulate you. So come with me. Let me safely guide you to the top of Patagonia’s roof.

I will be waiting for your message.

And if you are interested in another expedition up another one of the country’s beautiful volcanoes, you can also join me on this trip.

About the guide

Mountain Guide - EPGAMT - Argentina
I was born in Patagonia, Argentina and formed at an early age as a climber in the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Currently I completed a large number of rock and ice climbing routes, backcountry skiing and ascents in many mountains around the world such as Mt. Lhotse (8.516 mts.), the 4th highest peak in the world, without using supplemental oxygen (May, 2012).
I'm a certified Mountain Guide from the EPGAMT and a member of the Argentinian Mountain Guides Association (AAGM) and work on Mt. Aconcagua, which I had repeatedly ascended, as well as in other peaks in the Central Andes, Patagonia, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and in The Himalayas in Nepal.
During the winter season, I practice backcountry skiing, mostly on the volcanoes in Patagonia, where I can offer you different adventures, according to your level (beginner, learner or advanced learner).
I feel very privileged to work as a mountain guide, to do the job that I love, and to be able to share it with people that have the same passion.
Join my expeditions and I will provide you a high standard of safety and personal attention!
