The Atacama Desert is one of Chile’s most praised gems. This vast area is the driest desert on Earth! Yet, despite its desertic nature, it is incredibly rich, with unique natural and cultural wonders.
On our expedition we will visit many marvels such as the Laguna Santa Rosa and Laguna Verde. And of course, we’ll reach the summit of Nevado Ojos del Salado, a volcano located right at the border between Argentina and Chile, in the Andes. Not only it’s the tallest active volcano on the planet, rising at 6,893 meters, it is also the highest mountain in Chile.
Because it lies within the desert, Ojos del Salado has dry conditions. However, there’s a permanent lake in its crater, located at 6,390 meters. Thus it is the highest lake in the world!
To reach the summit of Ojos del Salado, we will mostly trek, until we reach the final section. Here we’ll find a more difficult scramble area, where we may have to gear up and use ropes. But worry not, as I will be with you the whole ascent, to make sure you have a safe and fun expedition.
If you want to get to the top of Nevado Ojos del Salado with me, don’t hesitate and request to book this trip. It will be my pleasure to guide you across the Atacama Desert on this amazing journey.
Looking for a shorter trip? I also guide this 4-day trek in Rio Salado, San Pedro de Atacama.
