The South American Altiplano is the world’s largest high plateau outside of Tibet and stretches from Northern Chile and Argentina over Western Bolivia up to Southern Peru. This expedition takes you to the Chilean and Argentinean part of the Altiplano, a desertic region which is well known amongst mountaineers as it concentrates the highest number of six thousand meter peaks in the world. Hidden amid all these giant mountains and volcanoes rises Monte Pissis, an extinct volcano that overlooks vast parts of the beautiful Atacama Desert and the surrounding 6,000m peaks such as Ojos del Salado.

During this trip you will get the opportunity to climb several of those giants, always keeping in mind the final goal of ascending Monte Pissis. Every single one of the peaks we climb offers 360 degree views that are beyond description. On the way, we will come across the beautiful and diverse scenery of the Atacama Desert around the desert towns of San Pedro de Atacama and Copiapó.

Join us for this expedition to a region that only few people have seen and experience the fascination of the beautiful Atacama Desert and the Andean Altiplano.
