Mt. Las Tortolas (6.160 masl) Expedition


We invite you to discover why the Incas chose Las Tortolas Mountain as one of the Apus of the Elqui Valley!

 

An incredible 6,000 meters above sea level, in the depths of the mystical Elqui Valley.

 

Las Tortolas Mountain

 

Las Tortolas Mountain is the highest altitude in the Coquimbo Region, sharing only with the Nevado de Olivares the precious altitude of 6000 meters above sea level. It is located 140 kilometers from the city of La Serena, on the border with Argentina and stands out among its neighbors because there are no nearby heights that compare. It is the headwaters of the Vacas Heladas River, one of the tributaries of the Elqui River, and is characterized by its high altitude passes, such as the Vacas Heladas Pass, at 4710 meters. Like other 6000s, Las Tortolas Mountain was part of the high-altitude sanctuaries of the Inca culture, and in fact is one of the best studied to date. In 1952, a construction identical to the one found on Mt. El Plomo was found on its summit: an enormous pyramid eight meters by four meters, with retaining walls one meter high. In addition to this, in the numerous archaeological ascensions that have been carried out, among other objects, a bundle of firewood, pieces of pottery, remains of hearths and three anthropomorphic silver statuettes and seashells were found.

This is how we like to work and enjoy every activity

 

We work only with 4×4 vehicles equipped for the mountains. (Comfortable and with great capacity for mountain trails).

 

We work with groups that, in general, do not exceed six people per outing (which helps us to provide a more personalized service, in which a more familiar and concentrated atmosphere is generated).

 

Allmountain is certified by Sernatur (Certification of Tourist Guides; Certification in Adventure Tourism, sub-areas of: High Mountain, hiking, trekking, climbing) and is currently registered in the Registry of Tourism Service Providers of the same institution.

 

Our guides are people with experience in the field and have the required certifications to work in these activities (certifications that are also being updated), such as: Wilderness First Responder (WFR) Certification.

 

In each activity, we privilege the provision of a sustainable service: we use recyclable and organic products, we promote the principles of NDR (Leave No Trace), we promote local tourism, etc.

 

If you want to participate in a trekking or expedition and you do not have the technical equipment to do so, Allmountain includes them in each activity (if required). Example: tent, crampons, ice axe, helmet, etc.

 


We are committed to sustainable and sustainable tourism

 

In every trekking, expedition, mountain tour or climbing trip, we bet on one:

 

Cultural Sustainability:

Souvenirs from local artisans: We visit cultural centers, museums, craft fairs in order to promote the consumption of products from local communities and for our customers to interact with them to get a complete experience of the local community and their customs, food and so on.

 

Ecological Sustainability:

We use soaps and natural cleaning products that do not pollute the soil and water of the places we visit.

We use glass containers and after each activity we separate and recycle the garbage produced during our outings.

We try to clean the places we visit or bring the garbage we find.

 

Energy Sustainability:

Solar battery chargers: We use solar battery chargers to charge our cell phones, cameras and other electronic items.
