Between October and March, because the climate is more stable, compared to the rest of the year. Due to the altitude in which the activity takes place, it is necessary to consider ascending in that period. In addition, it must be taken into account that between January and March, the phenomenon of “Bolivian winter” occurs, which translates into abrupt changes in climate (with the appearance of bad weather, rain and more wind).
MOUR INFORMATION ABOUT THIS MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE
Initial Altitude: 4.900 masl
Maximum Altitude: 6.018 masl
Nevados de San Francisco belongs to the largest in the area, with an altitude of 6,018 meters above sea level, being the ideal hill for a proper acclimatization, prior to the ascent to Ojos del Salado, both for its altitude and its proximity with the same. Its name is related to the Paso de San Francisco (which, in the history of Chile, had a great importance, because it was at that step that Diego de Almagro and his army crossed the Andes Mountain Range at the historic milestone of the discovery From Chile). This Hill invites us to discover the majestic Andes Mountain Range.
Initial Altitude: 5.200 masl
Maximum Altitude: 6.983 masl
The Ojos del Salado Volcano is a stratovolcano of 6,893 meters of altitude, known for being the highest volcano in the world and for being the second highest peak in America, after Aconcagua, forming part of the popularly known “Roof of America”. It is located in the Cordillera de Los Andes, specifically in the Third Region of Atacama, in an area where there are large peaks that exceed 6,000 masl, in the southern part of the famous Atacama Desert (the driest desert in the world). The route to this volcano is difficult and remote access.
In this incredible Volcano we can experience the experience of taking our body and mind to the highest point, from which we will have a truly unique view of the desert and we will enter a route that will invite us to observe the purest of the Cordillera.
