The Pomerape volcano, an immediate neighbour of the Parinacota volcano, is a beautiful mountain nestled in the Chilean-Bolivian "altiplano".
The Pomerape volcano is located at the Bolivian border, just next to its bigger brother: the volcano Parinacota.
The climbing route, via the north face, does not include major difficulties, as altitude is gained by ascending gentle slopes. Its summit, a crown of ice and snow, is a wide esplanade from which the imposing surrounding peaks and unique lagoons and desert wetlands can be appreciated,
