Ojos del Salado is an active volcano in the Andes on the Argentina–Chile border and the highest active volcano in the world at 6,893 m (22,615 ft).

It is also the second highest mountain in both the Western Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere, only 68 metres lower than Aconcagua, one of the seven summits. At approximately 7,000 meters (23,000 ft), this climb is an excellent test of how you will perform at a very high altitude and very good preparation for climbing 8000 metre (26,000 ft) peaks such as Everest.

  1. Excellent leadership by SummitClimb’s leader Max, who has led more than 40 SummitClimb expeditions to Ojos, Aconcagua, Everest, Lhotse, Manaslu, Gasherbrum, Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam, Lobuche, and Island Peak.
  2. The team will practice and refresh skills with rope, ice axe, and crampon technique, and will
  3. Acclimatize carefully by climbing several sub peaks, with rest days in between, before ascending Ojos itself.
  4. Includes delicious food, nice hotels, very good basecamp with a cook, and all high altitude support staff, high camps, tents, meals, etc.


Day 1 – Arrival to Copiapo, Chile (CPO) – 800m / 2625 ft - We’ll pick you up at the airport, 50km away from Copiapo. In the same day, we will check your personal equipment, making all final adjustments and shopping if necessary. Today we’ll have our first dinner together and meet the rest of the team. Included: transport and hotel

Day 2 – Copiapo – Laguna Santa Rosa Hut – 3700m / 12,139 feet - After a 210km / 126 mile drive, we’ll sleep in a small mountain hut at the edge of a beautiful salty lagoon called Santa Rosa. Included: Breakfast, transport, lunch, and dinner

Day 3 – Acclimatization on SieteHermanos – 4780m / 15,682 ft. - We’ll climb SieteHermanos up to its summit or go as high as we can depending on the team’s condition. This is a fairly ‘low’ 4780m peak near Laguna Santa Rosa. Included: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 4 – Laguna Santa Rosa Hut – Laguna Verde Hut – 4300m / 14,107 ft - After a nice and generous breakfast, we’ll drive 120km / 72 mile to Laguna Verde. We’ll cook and gather in a small mountain hut and sleep in tents. The good news is that inside the hut there is a rather large pool of warm water which comes from nearby hot springs. Included: Breakfast, lunch, dinner (and bath!)

Day 5 – Climb to MulasMuertas – 5200m / 17,060 ft. - Another day of acclimatisation. Today is our turn climb MulasMuertas located just a few kilometers away from our hut. Again, we’ll take it very easy and go as high as we can without compromising our bodies. Included: Breakfast, lunch, dinner (and bath again!)

Day 6 – Rest day – 4300m / 14,107 ft. Today we’ll rest on Laguna Verde.

Day 7 – Climbing Nevado San Francisco – 6023m / 19,760 ft After a very early breakfast, we’ll put our plastic boots and packs on and then drive to 5000 metres / 17,500 feet to start the climb to Nevado San Francisco via the north ridge. The drive takes about 30 minutes and the climb might take us 5 to 7 hours. Would be great if you can try you best to get to the top as this will really push your confidence and acclimatisation. After summiting, our 4WD vehicles will be waiting for us at the bottom, then take us back to the hut. Included: Breakfast, packed lunch, transport, and dinner

Day 8 – Rest day – 4400m / 14,435 feet - Today will rest at Laguna Verde and recover from yesterday’s climb. Included: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 9 – Drive to Atacama Hut – 5200m / 17,060 ft. - A 2-hour drive to a higher hut named Atacama. Only this time its a 5200 metre / 17,060 ft. high hut and the roads can be quite bad. Today you get to relax (or try to) and enjoy the lunar landscape to Atacama Hut while our skillful drivers do what they do best. Included: Breakfast, lunch, dinner and offroad insane transport

Day 10 – Atacama Hut – Tejos Hut – 5800m / 19,028 ft. - This is when we finally put large backpacks on and stop driving! After an early lunch, we’ll walk for 3 to 5 hours to a 5800 metre / 20,300 feet metal hut named Tejos. Included: Breakfast and lunch

Day 11 – First summit attempt – 6898m / 22,625 feet - After a 3am start, we expect a 7 to 9-hour push to the summit. The climb starts with straightforward switchbacks then changes to a huge traverse at 6500m / 21,320 ft. We then reach the main crater and work our way to the summit over a final steep gully and a technical 10-metre rock section to the main summit. Included: chance of summiting the largest volcano on Earth!

Day 12 – Second summit attempt - In case weather was bad yesterday

Day 13 – Drive back to Copiapo - Included: transport and hotel

Day 14 – Flight back to home country. It has been very nice meeting you!

It's going to be lots of fun, extremely beautiful, and an excellent high altitude experience! So don’t delay – BOOK NOW and start counting down the days!
