High Altitude Mountaineering expedition in the Chilean Andes

A trip through the big mountains of Chile, where we will visit the classic “San José de Maipo” and the desert highlands of the “Puna de Atacama” to experience the High-Altitude volcano climbing.

The Andes is the most important mountain range in America, passing through 7 countries along its 7.500 kilometers. In Chile, the Andes are responsible for the shape and character of the country, people and the environment. It extends through 4,600km and counts 38 mountains over 6.000m of altitude from Santiago up to the border with Perú.

This journey will take us to climb mountains from about 5.000 and more than 6.000 meters of altitude. Our starting point will be Santiago and the Maipo valley, where the San José volcano will test us with its 5.8000m. After this we will fly to the Puna de Atacama, to make our way to the “Ojos del Salado”: the world’s highest active volcano and one of the 3.000 that forms the Chilean Andes (also Chile’s highest point, 6.893m). But before the attempt of its summit, we will acclimate in the “Cerro Siete Hermanas (4.780m)” and the “Copiapo” volcano (6.052m).
