Description
Country: 

Second highest in South America. The Chilean high plateau desert east of Copiapó, above Chañaral, is well known by the world mountaineers as it concentrates the highest number of six thousand meter peaks in the Andes. During this trip, we propose to climb the second highest mountain in South America or the highest volcano in the world. On this program we will climb other volcanos in the region. One of these mountains will be Volcano Copiapó which is part of our acclimatization. After Volcano Copiapó we head over to Volcano Ojos del Salado. During this trip we will come across places of beauty and natural diversion in a high desert climate. From the summits we have 360 degree views beyond description.
