Licancabur Volcano, located in the border between Chile and Bolivia, is one of the most characteristic volcanoes in the area, due to its 5,900 meters high and its summit with an almost perfect cone shape. Because it is very difficult to climb, it requires a very complex technique; this activity is a challenge for mountain climbing enthusiasts and experienced people, as well. The climb goes through loose rock tracks with a considerable slope, so it is required an excellent physical condition.


Itinerary

 

Day 1

We will leave San Pedro de Atacama the first day in a, approximately, 3-hour trip in which we will cross the desert to the Bolivian border. In the way, you will pass by the base of Sairecabur and the Los Hermanos Lookout Point, form where it is possible to see the Blanca and Verde Lagoons in Bolivian territory. When reaching the base of the Licancabur Volcano, we will set up the camp and then you will make an acclimation trek, so you can be more prepared for the next day. As you walk you will be able to test your physical condition, besides take advantage of the views of the desert from the high places. Back to the camp, you will have dinner and rest very early, because the climbing starts before dawn the next day.

 

Day 2

At 2:00 am, you will start going up, activity that lasts around 8 hours, depending on the rhythm of the group and the weather conditions, for sure. You will have the chance to see the dawn as you go up, which will give you amazing views during this part of the trip. You will reach the top of the volcano, at an altitude of 19,357 feet, where besides the views of the surrounding mountains, of the Bolivian territory and the salt flat in the Chilean side, you will see a small lagoon formed in the crater. If the weather conditions are good and your body is responding well, you can go down to the lagoon, and then up, to get a closer look to this place, considered part of the Inca route where sacrifices were made. After staying in the summit for a while, take pictures and get rest, you will start descending to the base camp to get your things and order everything, so then you continue back to San Pedro de Atacama, where the activity ends.

 

*Reaching the summit is subject to physical conditions of the group and the weather conditions of the place.


*In case it is not possible climb up through the Chilean territory, we will try to find an alternative by Bolivian territory.
