PISSIS EXPEDITION

PISSIS volcano

JANUARY 2018

The Pissis with its 6,780 meters (22,211 feet) is the third highest mountain in the Americas and towers proudly over its neighbours. 

 

Nestled within the argentinian desert, the sheer approach is an adventure in itself: over 90 kilometres off-track crossing through mountainous, desert terrain, fording streams and rivers, passing beautiful intensely coloured turquoise lakes under the curious observation of the numerous vicuñas and guanacos that populate this desolate landscape. 

 

The Pissis´ five summits present an interesting challenge to those trying to climb it. Its principal summit can be reached after crossing snowfields, scree slopes and secondary summits. Enjoy around 12 days full of adventure and incredible landscapes within an overwhelming alpine setting.
