The two highest in South America
The Chilean high plateau desert east of Copiapó, above Chañaral, is well known by the world mountaineers as it concentrates the highest number of six thousand meter peaks in the Andes. During this trip, we propose to climb the two highest in South America, first climb is Mulas Muertas as part of our acclimatization and then Vn. Ojos del Salado. The highest volcano in the world. During the trip we will come across places of amazingly beautiful and diverse nature, and from the summits the 360 degree views beyond description. After our attempt on Ojo`s del Salado we drive through Argentina heading south towards Mendoza. From Mendoza we head out to Aconcagua. The highest mountain in the America’s, our attempt will be a quick ascent as we will have acclimatized on Ojo’s del Salado. On this trip we will see very different regions and cultural difference.
