OJOS DEL SALADO VOLCANO EXPEDITION

The Ojos del Salado volcano is the highest summit across Chile and the second summit in America, and it is also the tallest active volcano in the world. That’s why this is one of the most desired challenges among mountaineers around the world. Ojos del Salado is almost as tall as Mt. Aconcagua which surpasses it by 60mts. The volcano is located in the borderline between Chile and Argentina, in the Chilean Atacama region, on of the most active mining regions in the country. Inside the National Park Nevado de Tres Cruces we can spot the Negro Francisco Lake and the Maricunga salt-flat which serves as refuge to three flamingo species. The closest city is Copiapó, where we can find everything we need to start our climbing upwards Ojos del Salado.
