Description
Country: 

The high desert of the Chilean plateau east of Copiapó, above Chañaral, is well known by world mountaineers for having the highest concentration of six thousand meter peaks in the world. What makes it even more unique is that many of these peaks are volcanoes. Hidden amongst them are the two peaks of Vn Copiapó, and Vn Ojos del Salado which we propose to climb. First we will attempt Vn. Copiapó as part of our acclimatization and then Vn. Ojos del Salado, the highest volcano in the world. During the trip we travel through stunningly diverse landscapes, and from the summits of both peaks the 360 degree panorama is beyond words. The adventure to Ojos Del Salado is the number one choice for those looking for a once in a lifetime challenge.
