Tour itinerary

We will leave early in the morning, in a comfortable 4x4 vehicle, appreciating the splendid sunrise. Beginning our ascension trekking, with a duration of about 7 hours.

We have a minimum of 2 guides per tour, the first one marking the step, while the second one always takes the last position of the group for containment, thus ensuring greater security and coverage of the passengers, both communicated by radio between them, in any eventuality.

Acclimatization and safety

Let's consider that we are in a mountain with medium/difficult access when presenting in its route, difficulty of inclination and presence of great rocks. We recommend that you have some basic experience in high altitude trekking, as well as being healthy and fit.

Ideally, you should have done volcanoes of easy and medium difficulty in San Pedro de Atacama before ascending, to improve your acclimatization.

Ideal volcano to prepare you for a more difficult ascent of the Andes mountain range.
