Join me on this Pili Volcano (6,046 meters /19,836 feet) one day guided ascent!

The Pili Volcano is a stratovolcano located in the region of Antofagasta, Chile, 80 kilometers southeast of San Pedro de Atacama. Also known as the Acamarachi volcano, it is part of the Andes mountain range and has a height of 6,046 meters.

In its crater, at an altitude of 5,950 meters above sea level, we will discover the highest lake in Chile and one of the highest in the world: Lake Acamarachi.

We will leave San Pedro de Atacama at 5am and travel along the road that leads to Jama Pass. We will then go to the Salar de Pujsa to enjoy some delicious breakfast and witness one of Chile’s most wonderful landscapes of mountains, streams and  lagoons.

Keep in mind that the duration of the ascent will be 7 hours and it will take us 3 hours to descend.

I will be happy to safely guide you during this mountaineering adventure in the North of Chile. So if you are ready to take on this one-day guided ascent, request to book this trip and get ready for a thrill you will never forget!

The excursion to the Pili volcano can be done in 1 or 2 days depending on the participants wishes. If you are looking for a less challenging trip, you can also join me on this Pili Volcano (6046 m) two day guided ascent.

About lead guide, Christian Fernandez:

I’m originally from Argentina, but live in Chile since 1998. Now I’m settled in the north of Chile, in San Pedro de Atacama, beautiful town in the heart of the Andean section of the dry Atacama dessert.

From there I organize many expeditions to beautiful peaks on a weekly basis. I’ve done more than 300 high altitude ascents, and more than 25 peaks over 6000 metres.

I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.
