Feb, Mar, Nov, Dec
I will meet you in the reserved hostel. Preparation of the ascent equipment. Rest of the afternoon free to tour around the city.
We’ll depart from Jujuy to Leon at 8 am. From there we will move in 4 × 4 along the bed of the Lion River to a crossroads, where we’ll start the first day of trekking to Pie de la Cuesta.
After breakfast we will leave in direction to Los Mimbres. This day we will have to ascend from 2631 to 3596 meters of altitude, passing through Ovejera. We will arrive in the afternoon and spend the night in the house of the family of Nicanor Gutiérrez.
Only those who wish to, can make a reconnaissance of the place and ascend the viewpoint hill of 4130 meters of height. This day serves us to acclimatize and test us in height, since the puna of the place makes us feel more tired due to dry air.
After breakfast we will go to Puesto Ángela, an old grazing place, where we will set up our camp for the night.
We leave at 10 o’clock in the morning to the Refugio de los Militares, a hut built near the foot of Chañi Chico. We will spend the night there.
At 10 AM we will leave towards the base of Nevado de Chañi at 5050 m., where we will set up a camp at high altitude and finally on the next day we’ll make a summit attempt, if the whole group is in conditions. Otherwise it is planned to do another day of acclimatization.
We will leave at 5 AM towards the summit. This day is key to overcome the last stage to the top of the Chañi. We will have slopes of up to 40º with a lot of slab stone. Before the appearance of snow and ice, we must place crampons and use pickaxe of crossing. Once we get the summit, we will have a brief celebration and leave our testimony and we will descend to the Refugio de los Militares to spend the night.
After breakfast, we will leave for Los Mimbres. Night in Los Mimbres.
Day dedicated to the return. We will leave very early, since we will have a route of almost 30 km, but with an advantage, since the majority of the route will be in descent, being foreseen to arrive between 5 and 7 in the afternoon to Leon. Then we go to the Hostel In San Salvador de Jujuy.
*NOTE: It is planned to have an extra day, for acclimatization or waiting for bad weather.

I specialize in guided tours to Lanin volcano, by the normal route or other alternative routes and I also have the authorization of Lanin National Park since 2003. I have done between 30 and 40 ascents to Lanin per season, which gives me the experience and security to plan the safest programs with the best services.
In addition to Lanin, I also specialize in guided tours to Domuyo and Tromen volcanos, and traverses in the San Martin de los Andes area.
