Tupungato Volcano Guiding Expedition
The imposing dome of Tupungato (6.570 m / 21555 ft) dominates the region, and the summit marks the international border between Argentina and Chile.
Tupungato, one of the highest mountains in the Americas, is a massive Andean volcano. It lies on the border between the Chilean Metropolitan Region (near a major international highway about 80 km (50 mi) east of Santiago) and the Argentine province of Mendoza, about 100 km (62 mi) south of Mount Aconcagua. Immediately to its southwest is the active Tupungatito volcano, which last erupted in 1987.
This impressive and wild volcano is set in a remote and uncrowded location. Snowy slopes of giant magnitudes, coned shape, pristine, and surrounded by 20,000 ft. alpine glacier peaks make this mountain a very desirable climb and an unforgettable adventure expedition.
The Argentinian normal route has a nice and gradual approximation, through Gaucho land and valleys full of wildlife. Once in the slopes of the volcano, it is a non-technical climb, with a short snow travel section. The South Face route climbs along the glacier, with some sections that require protection (45% slope).
The East face of the Volcano (with many still unclimbed, technical lines), keeps the rests of the Stardust, a British aircraft that crashed in 1947, and was a mystery for 50 years.
