  • The volcano Cerro Toco is located in the Atacama desert, more specifically, near the border between Chile and Bolivia. Of your Summit you can see the Laguna Blanca in Bolivia. The altitude reaches 5,600 metres. After a long road trip, where it was necessary to give many turns to find the best access to the base of the volcano, we reached 5,000 meters above sea level where we started our walk. We take 01:50 to scroll through the 600 metres and reaches the top of the volcano. It takes Yes be physically prepared for the ascent, it's amazing the effect of altitude, it took constant to retrieve the breath stops, a bit of coca tea and the motivation of our guide Felipe "Chips" to help us overcome the rise and the strong winds. In the end, the view makes up for all the effort, is magnificent. Extraordinary ride!

  • The ascent to the Toco Hill does not require great physical condition but if much determination and become acclimatized a few days in San Pedro before boarding. They are 5600 m high, it is climbing on foot in loas approx 4000 m. A great experience with the best view of San Pedro will even get to see the Green lagoon of Bolivia. It is very important to go with a guide who will help you take the necessary breaks to not apunarse, we climbed with Andrés de Sol Atacama Hostel, the best experience of the trip was to reach the top.
