The Llullaillaco volcano is considered the second highest volcano in the world (6.739 m) after Ojos del Salado (6.893 m), is also the third highest peak in Chile and clearly a challenge. We cross the driest desert in the world (Atacama). The ascent of this mythical volcano transcends from sports to a spiritual plane, since it is a sacred mountain and one of the main sanctuaries of the Inca culture. Near the summit, at about 6.700 m, three mummified bodies were found left there in honor of the gods, graduating as well as the highest sanctuary in the world. 


The ascent to the mountain is technically easy, through poorly defined trails and some stretches over snowfields that usually have penitents that sometimes hinder progress. The low temperatures, the altitude and long working days, typical of any climb to 6.000, are the elements that make this mountain a hard test to overcome, but beyond the summit, it constitutes a strong and interesting personal challenge.
