Just sixty metres lower than Aconcagua, Ojos del Salado can be found on the edge of the Atacama Desert (the driest spot on earth) and is the world’s highest volcano. Our journey to the mountain takes us by jeep to the remote region of the Chilean Altiplano where few people go, passing through salt flats and pristine mountain lakes in this region of amazing beauty. We acclimatise on the beautiful peak of Volcan Copiapó 6052m, before making our ascent of the majestic massif of Ojos del Salado where the 360º summit views are beyond description. No crowds on this peak!
Ojos Del Salado is also the highest of the Seven Continental Volcanic Summits challenge and the highest volcano in the world. An easier and better peak than Aconcagua to climb after Kilimanjaro.
You can extend your stay to climb Aconcagua.
