    After a one-and-a-half hour drive by van, we reach the Sairecabur Volcano’s caldera, where we begin ascending. We walk through rocks, stones and loose crags and cross a former sulfur mine before taking the final steep hike.
    We will reach the highest point of our explorations at the summit of the "mountain of rain", the meaning of its name.

  • Exploration Path

    After having conducted several explorations at more than 4,000 m.a.s.l. (13,123 f.a.s.l) and gradually acclimatizing our body, we leave by van from explora to a remote camp in Bolivia on the sixth day. Once settled in the camp, we take a walk across the areas of the Verde and Blanca lagoons, from where we have a good view of the Licancabur Volcano. The next day we wake up early to begin walking before dawn. We use headlamps to light a well-marked trail. Halfway along the ascent we watch the dawn over the Blanca and Verde lagoons. We reach the summit after walking for several hours. From here, we have a view to the crater and the world’s highest lagoon. Descent can be challenging due to steep slopes and unstable terrain. We cross oldInca ruins on the way back.

    We horseback ride to the ayllus located in Séquitor, Yaye, and Checar, Atacameño social and farming communities that are also considered small oasis in the middle of the desert.
