19,858-19.801 ft

Guallatiri & Acotango

Guallatiri and Acotango volcanoes (19,858 – 19,801 ft) are part of the range of mountains called Quimsachatas, XV region.

They are close to the Payachatas, whose summits are composed, among others, of the Pomerape and Parinacota volcanoes and with the beautiful Chungará lake between them.

These 2 summits —Guallatiri and Acotango— slightly exceed 19.685 ft. and their ascent routes run through rocky slopes and, mainly Acotango, through snowfields up to the summit, allowing views of the imposing Chilean-Bolivian altiplano and its peaks, lakes and valleys.
