Come with UIAGM certified aspirant guide Nicolas to this 12-day expedition and reach the summit of Nevado Ojos del Salado, the highest volcano in the world!
Jan, Feb, Mar, Nov, Dec
On the border between Chile and Argentina, in the northern area of both countries, we’ll find Nevado Ojos del Salado, a giant stratovolcano in the Andean range. Situated at 6,891 meters above sea level, Ojos del Salado is the tallest volcano in the world and the second highest mountain in the region after Aconcagua. Join me on this challenge to the the summit of this classic peak in the Andes!
Climbing from the Chilean side of this volcano is the most straightforward way up. On this 12-day adventure, we’ll set off from Copiapó. We will head up to the camps along the way to the summit and take a few acclimatization days to get ready on the way. Nearing the top, we will go through a 100m stretch of snow at a 35º inclination. Finally, once at the crater, we will have to climb a level 5.6 30m stretch. During the program, we’ll have the pleasure to see the amazing views of the stunning Atacama Desert and other breathtaking sights. You can find a day by day itinerary below.
Please keep in mind that to take part of this adventure, it’s mandatory to have prior mountaineering experience and a very good level of fitness. The initial hike up is not too technically challenging, however, it will become progressively more difficult as we approach the summit.
Don’t miss this amazing opportunity! Send the request to book your place on this expedition and get to the summit of the highest volcano in the world. I’m sure it will be an experience you’ll never forget!
