  • In the West of the province of Catamarca is one of the regions of highest elevation of the Cordillera de los Andes. 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.

  • It is a good route to make with their own car, it is all asphalt to the limit with Chile. Take account of having clean air filter to compensate the height (nearly 4500 m.a.s.l.)

  • Starting from Fiambala begins a landscape that is always beautiful and ever-changing-A 100 km you'll find the Cortaderas Hostería, which is a very good option if you want to make the journey (are 400 km between roundtrip) in two days (that's matter of taste and time of each)- anyway, about 40 km before the grottoes (put of Gendarmerie of Argentina) are going to appreciate a series of volcanoes that intermingle with mountains of Catamarca Puna.-Once you get to the caves, I recommend you do the process migration-there are 20 km to the border and then 20 km more to Laguna Verde, already in Chilean territory (not you got that make any processing because it the custom this later).-the spectacle of the landscape is excellent-I recommend you to go out with the tank filled from Fiambala because there is no possibility to load fuel.-Fiambala - Lake route Ida green and turn is 440 km-route is excellent.
