Introduction

The high plateau of the Atacama Region, where the Tres Cruces National Park is located, is known with good reason as, "The Roof of the Andes". There is no other area in the world, with such a high concentration of mountains and volcanoes above 6.000 meters above sea level. One of the most impressive mountains of this geographical area is without a doubt the, Ojos del Salado, the highest volcano on Earth at 6.893 m. On the other hand, the large amount of attractive summits found in this area offers wonderful opportunities for mountain lovers. These hidden giants, some of which are only known by specialists, offer no big technical difficulties, but require that the mountaineers have a very good physical condition and this is what makes them a wonderful challenge. The excellent acclimatization program as well as the vast experience of the SPONDYLUS team in this area, should be the guarantor of a save and successful expedition.
