parinacota volcano

12 - 20 august 2017

The volcano Parinacota owes its name to the parinas (Andean flamingos). It is the region´s highest mountain and lies just north of the lake Chungará. It forms part of the Nevados de Payachatas mountain chain within the national park Lauca, a biosphere reserve.  

 

It is probably the most climbed mountain in the area owing to its height and its climb of low technical difficulty. The imposing Pomerape, another giant of over 6000 metres is its immediate neighbour. Both form the border with Bolivia and from their summits , the unique vast altiplanic landscapes can be observed.

The area through which we will pass is known for its great cultural and archaeological heritage. We will travel through populated areas such as the towns of Putre, Parinacota, Socoroma and Caquena.

 

The area boasts a wide variety of native fauna including vicuñas, guayas, flamingos, and vizcachas.
