Accompany UIMLA certified guide Pako on a 17 day climbing journey to the summit of the spectacular Pissis mountain in the Puna de Atacama area of Argentina.
Jan, Feb, Mar, Nov, Dec
The Pissis mountain (6,792m) in Argentina is a sensational peak. It also happens to be the third highest mountain in the Americas, behind only the Ojos del Salado and Aconcagua, yet it doesn’t nearly get the same attention as those peaks. Nonetheless, making the journey to its summit is an incredible adventure. And because it is less famous than those other peaks, there are less crowds to worry about in high season. Hence making this 17 day ascent a more tranquil, personally enlightening experience.
Located in the gorgeous Puna de Atacama plateau, the Pissis mountain is not an overtly difficult peak to climb. However, despite the relatively straight forward route, it is still a nearly 7,000 meter peak, so there will be some tough spots. As a result, it is important that participants on this trip have some prior experience and are in good physical condition.
Prior to your climb of Pissis, you will get to enjoy 4 acclimatization climbs of 4 fantastic peaks. Those peaks are the Redondo Colorado (4,180m), the Piedra Pomez (4,880m), the Mulas Muertas north shoulder (5,015m) and Mount San Francisco (6,045m). These climbs will ensure that you are properly acclimatized for the big climb of Pissis.
Throughout this trip you will be spending your nights in the village of Caldera, the Las Grutas refuge and in various campsites in places like Laguna Verde and Rio Lamas, as well as the various camps on Pissis.
Climbing Pissis is an amazing expedition. And I would be glad to guide you through it. If you would like to join me, all you have to do is send me a request.
Would you like to climb to the summit of the second highest peak in the Americas, the Ojos del Salado? Then join me on this 14 day trip.
2 nights in the village of Caldera, the Las Grutas refuge and a tent in different campsites during the expedition.
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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
