Come climb the Tupungato Peak in 12 days with Nicolas, IFMGA aspirant mountain guide from Chile, in the Central Andes. You won't regret it.
The Tupungato (6570 m) also called “the stars balcony” is the highest mountain of the Andes mountain range to the south of Aconcagua. With its enormous size and outstanding conical shape, it dominates the whole landscape of this central Chilean region.
Exceeding by many meters to all its neighboring peaks, this volcano is a serious challenge for mountaineers looking for a great experience in height. Come with me and dare to a “six thousand” technically simple summit but as physically hard as Mount Aconcagua.
All participants must have a perfect fitness condition and an intermediate technical level. The best period to climb Tupungato is from December to March. However it is also possible to ascend it during the winter (only for expert climbers).

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Chile
Mountain guide and instructor from the Chilean Andinism Federation (FEACH) and certified Wilderness First Responder.
I’ve opened several climbing routes in Chile, and was one of the first and very few Chileans to summit Cerro Torre, Fitz Roy, Paine Grande and Torres del Paine.
I climbed almost all the technical mountain in Cajón del Maipo, in Central Chile, and did some of the most important routes in Yosemite, Indian Creek and Patagonia.
And regarding ski mountaineering, I skied down Mount Illimani and Huayna Potosí in Bolivia, and Cerro Castillo, Morado Norte and Sur in Chile.

nicolas was fabulous and made the trip recommend him highly
The trip didn't happen due to weather conditions.
Nicolas is an excellent guide, with incredible mountaineering knowledge and technique (which was particularly worthwhile during our expedition when we encountered harsh winter conditions). His english is also very good. In short, I recommend this mountain guide.
Nico was an incredible guide. I wanted to ski the canaletas in Cerro Arenas and he was excited to take me there. He knows Cajon del Maipo like the back of his hand. Afterall, this is his backyard. He has spent decades skiing, climbing and exploring this region and his knowledge of the terrain and weather is very impressive. His english is good as well, and he is a really nice guy on top of all that. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a great ski mountaineering adventure.
My trip with Nicolas was perfect. He catered to my climbing preference and the hot springs at the end of day was exactly what we needed. I would definitely do it again! Thanks Nico for my first experience in climbing in Chile!
The guide did not know the route. We spent a lot of time trying to find the route. The climbing itself was good.

The trip was awesome. Our guide Nicolas was extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and very helpful. He is an expert guide. The sights were beautiful. The office quickly responded to our request and questions and provided excellent information.
I was really disappointed with Casa de Guias. It was not a terrible experience because Casa de Guias had found a wonderful guide and assistant although they did not know them (allmountain guide). As to Explore -Share I don´t intent to buy anything. I will write a full description of what happened by e-mail.
The trip was really nice and I enjoyed the climbing a lot!
