Some twenty peaks over 6,000 metres in height and are an irresistible destination for climbers of the world. The six thousand invite you to an adventure that goes far beyond sports. Here the spirit is drunk, step by step, from the magnificent power of a seasoned landscape, Bare hills and high plains where the climber achieved, finally, feel 'in the sky'. One of the favorite regions contains the volcanoes Pissis and Ojos del Salado; Walter Penck and Incahuasi; the Cerro Tres Cruces, births and San Francisco. Expeditions depart, in all cases, from the town of Fiambala, the so-called "door of the six thousand", where the traveler can count with all the infrastructure and services necessary. Started the adventure, some groups use Las Grutas refuge for acclimatization before promotion.View original
