Ojos del Salado Volcano (6.893 masl)


Ojos del Salado Volcano 6,893 M.S.N.M

 

The highest active volcano in the world

 The highest peak in Chile

 The second highest peak in the Americas

 

The Ojos del Salado volcano is actually in the middle of a spectacular “museum” of hills, in an extraordinarily remote and difficult to access area. Here, the mountains of the Andes Mountains rise majestically among salt flats, sands, flamingos and colorful lagoons; surprisingly, the snows and glaciers on their summits do not give up under the heat of the desert.

Ojos del Salado is located south of the Atacama Desert, in the most arid and desert-like area of the Andes, on a wide plain called the South American Altiplano.

Located in the third region of Chile – inside the city of Copiapó – and in the province of Catamarca on the Argentinean side, in a sector surrounded by mountains over 6000m high, Ojos del Salado stands out as the most outstanding summit with 6893m, an altitude that makes it worthy of several records: being the highest volcano in the world, the second highest summit in America, the highest mountain in the Chilean Andes and the second highest in the Argentinean Andes after Aconcahua (6959m).

 


¿WHERE IS OJOS DEL SALADO VOLCANO LOCATED ?

LOCATION: Ojos del Salado Volcano (6.893 msnm), Copiapó.
REGION: Atacama Region (North Zone of Chile).


ATTRACTIONS OF OJOS DEL SALADO VOLCANO EXPEDITION

 

Ojos del Salado Volcano is the highest active volcano in the world, the second highest peak in the American continent (immediately after Aconcagua in Argentina, with an altitude difference of only 70 meters) and is the highest peak in Chile.

High mountain expedition in the Andes and one of the most sought after challenges in the world.

Visit to Nevado Tres Cruces National Park and Santa Rosa Lagoon.

Visits to salt flats and places of reserve and conservation of species (such as flamingos).

Views of hypersaline lakes and lagoons in the middle of the mountain range (Santa Rosa Lagoon and Verde Lagoon).

Route through the “seismic circuit” (which, as its name says, allows the impressive panoramic view of multiple peaks over 6,000 meters).

Depending on the itinerary, in your acclimatization process, you will be able to climb to the summits of Mount Siete Hermanas (4,850 meters above sea level) and San Francisco Volcano (6,040 meters above sea level). Both summits provide a spectacular and challenging experience.

Consumption of local and regional products.

In the itineraries departing from Santiago, we will take advantage of the trip to visit and consume the typical products of the route, knowing their origin and history. In addition, the visit to the city of La Serena and moments of contemplation of the Pacific Ocean from its beaches are included.

BEST SEASON TO CLIMB OJOS DEL SALADO VOLCANO

 

Between December and March, because the climate is more stable, compared to the rest of the year. Due to the altitude in which the activity is developed, it is necessary to consider to ascend in that period. In addition, it is necessary to consider that between January and March, the phenomenon of the “Bolivian winter” takes place, which is translated in abrupt changes of climate (with appearance of bad weather, rain and more wind).


MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS ADVENTURE EXPEDITION

 

 

Santa Rosa Lagoon (3.762 masl)

 

 

The Santa Rosa Lagoon is located within the Tres Cruces Snowy Park. It is a hypersaline mountain lake that shelters entire families of flamingos for their feeding (due to the high concentration of salinity and minerals). In addition, you can observe flamingos and vicuñas around it.  This place, besides being one of the most recommended acclimatization points for the Ojos del Salado expedition, invites us to enjoy an unparalleled natural beauty.

 

Laguna Verde (4.300 masl)

 

 

A true mountain paradise surrounded by seismic activity. Laguna Verde is located a few kilometers from the border with Argentina. Its turquoise waters and the landscape that exists there is shocking and moving. This place, like Laguna Santa Rosa, serves as a point of acclimatization, rest and contemplation. Around the Lagoon, we can find hot springs (hot water that is tempered from the depths of the great volcanoes that surround the Lagoon).

 

 

Cerro Nevado de San Francisco (6.040 masl)

 

 

Nevados de San Francisco belongs to the great ones of the area, with an altitude of 6,040 meters above sea level, being the ideal hill for a suitable acclimatization, previous to the ascent to Ojos del Salado, both for its altitude and for its proximity to it. Its name is related to the San Francisco Pass (which, in the history of Chile, had a great importance, because it was in that pass that Diego de Almagro and his army crossed the Andes Mountains in the historical milestone of the discovery of Chile). This hill invites us to discover the majestic Andes Mountains.

 

 

Volcán Ojos del Salado (6.893 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 the Aconcagua, being part of the popularly known “Roof of America”. It is located in the middle of the Andes, specifically in the Third Region of Atacama, in an area where there are large peaks that exceed 6,000 meters, in the southern part of the famous Atacama Desert (the driest desert in the world). The route to this volcano is difficult and remote.

In this incredible volcano we will be able to live the experience of taking our body and mind to the highest point, from which we will have a really unique view of the desert and we will go into a route that will invite us to observe the purest of the Cordillera.

 


If you have the necessary technical equipment for the activity:

 

If you have the necessary equipment we can discount the price of the technical equipment from the total price of the expedition. In this case, it is the sole responsibility of the client. Without prejudice to this, we are always willing to advise our customers for greater security.
