Description

Would you like to climb an awesome volcano of the Andes? Then join me for a 12-day ascent to the top of Incahuasi! 

The Incahuasi (6640m)  is a volcanic mountain standing on the border between the Argentine province of Catamarca and the Atacama region of Chile. Along with El Fraile, El Muerto, Nevado Tres Cruces and El Solo, it forms a 50-km long volcanic chain.

For this 12-day expedition we will meet in Fiambala, a city famous for its thermal waters and its important archaeological value. After some acclimatization treks in Pastos Largos (3300m) and Cerro Coquena (4035m), we will reach the top of Incahuasi, the tenth highest mountain in the Andes!

We will discover an area with great variety of fauna (camelids, guanacos, vicuña, llamas, foxes, eagles, condors and flamingos, among other species), and a rich flora dominated by carob trees and medicinal herbs.

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

So, if you want to reach the summit of Incahuasi, just get in touch with me. Let’s live an amazing 12-day adventure in the Andes!

I also offer a 9-day expedition to the summit of Nevado San Francisco, in this same area. Check it out here.
