Description

The Tuzgle Volcano is an stratovolcano located in the Puna de Atacama in Argentina, more precisely in the department of Susques in the province of Jujuy, near the border with Salta.

What I am offering you is a non technical program of 4 days across a stunning trail in the Quebrada de Humahuaca and Puna de Atacama. Its easy ascent trekking will allow you to discover the loneliness of the Northern plateau of Argentina and, of course, its incomparable colors.

Here you have an estimate itinerary of this 4-day trekking expedition up to The Tuzgle Volcano:

DAY 1: STARTING POINT

We leave Jujuy and go to the base of Cerro Negro by transfer. From there, we will start our first hike up to this hill at 3.600 meters. Then, we descend to Tilcara (2.450m) where we will spend the night in a Hotel.

DAY 2: MORE TREKKING

During this acclimatization day we will trek to Cerro Morado during about 3 hours reaching an altitud of 4.550 meters. We will also visit Salinas Grandes, a imposing saline. Then, we will be taken to spend the night in a Hotel in San Antonio de los Cobres.

DAY 3: SAN GERONIMO VOLCANO

It is another acclimatization trek to the San Gerónimo Volcano at 4.950 meters. This hike will take us approximately 3 hours. Night in San Antonio de los Cobres again.

DAY 4: SUMMIT!

Trekking and ascent to the Tuzgle Volcano summit with a magnificent sight of the entire Argentine Puna. Then, we will take a ride in the Tren de las nubes (“Train to the clouds”) and finally we will be taken to Jujuy by a 4×4. End of our services.

As you can see, it is an amazing experience ideal for those who want to give the first steps in the mountaineering world. I can help you in everything you need to make your idea come reality. I will be waiting for your contact!
