Description

There are a number of amazing mountains to climb in Chile. And on this mesmerizing 26 day adventure, you will get the chance to climb 3 of the nation’s biggest, the Ojos del Salado (6,893m), Tres Cruces Sur (6,750m) and Llullaillaco (6,739m).

Along with those 3 incredible peaks,  you will also get to climb 3 additional peaks for the purpose of acclimatization. Those peaks include the Redondo Colorado (4,180m), Mount Piedra Pomez (4,880m) and the Mulas Muertas north shoulder (5,015m). That’s 6 amazing peaks in the Chilean Andes on one trip!

When embarking on an adventure of this magnitude, it is crucial that participants have the proper climbing experience. It is also imperative that participants are in excellent physical condition. This trip will be arduous and will have difficult moments. However, the rewards you will get in terms of the spellbinding views and the thrilling experience to reach those views will be truly memorable.

Along with the peaks on this trip, you will also get to visit and observe the beauty of the Puna de Atacama plateau. You will get to see the Santa Rosa lake, Laguna Verde, the villages of Caldera and Taltal, and so much more.

Furthermore, to ensure that you reach all of the summits on this trip’s itinerary, there will be several extra days. The purpose of these extra days is to give you some insurance in case of inclement weather, or other unforeseen circumstances.

Are you an adventurer? Then join me on this 26 day adventure to the top of Chile’s highest peaks. Send me a request and enjoy the views from the summits of the Ojos del Salado, Tres Cruces Sur and Llullaillaco.

I also lead a 17 day expedition to the summit of Argentina’s great Pissis mountain as well.

About the guide

guide profile img

I try to do things differently, I do not like boxes. I have lived in the corporate world, in a caravan, working as an au pair, a frustrated travel photographer and a Spanish teacher in Denmark. Travel backpacking from Spain to Vietnam for a year and travel the length of Chile on my mountain bike.

Always in love with travel, I have been working for the outdoor industry since 2008 traveling the world in more than 30 countries. I love to guide and share my experience and mountaineering skills with other lovers of remote and isolated destinations, far from crowded mountaineering centers. When I'm not working or in the mountains you can find me playing the Spanish guitar sitting on the porch of my house sharing the sunset with my lovely girlfriend.
