Tupungato Volcano Expedition
Tupungato Volcano is one of the most amazing expeditions in the central Andes. 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 Aconcagua, the highest peak of both the Southern and Western Hemispheres. Immediately to its southwest is the active Tupungatito volcano, which last erupted in 1987. The mountain gives its name to the Tupungato Department, an important Argentine wine producing region in the Mendoza province. This impressive and wild volcano is set in a remote, uncrowded and reaches an altitude of 21.555 ft | 6570m. Snowy slopes of giant magnitudes, coned shape, pristine and surrounded by 20,000 ft. alpine glacier peaks, makes this mount a very desirable climb and an unforgettable adventure expedition.
