Climbing 6,000 meter (19385 ft) mountains will always be a challenge, so starting with this trip is an excellent opportunity to reach high altitudes of the Andes.

  • San Francisco (6,018 m – 19,744 ft).
  • Tres Cruces Norte (6,030 m-19,783 ft).
  • Peñas Blancas (6,036 m – 19,803 ft).

These mountains are the milestones that invite you to fulfill this ambitious project.

These mountains do not present technical difficulties during their ascent and cover approx. 1000 meters of unevenness from its base to the top.

These mountains are surrounded by enormous peaks that rise in the even larger desert, nestled in the middle of the Puna de Atacama area, with Ojos del Salado dominating the scene, being the main height in Chile.

All the ascents start from the same base camp in Laguna Verde, so it is an idea to rest after the effort delivered at each summit.
