The school summit of 5000 meters

The Tuzgle Volcano is a stratovolcano located in the Puna on the Argentine side. It exceeds 5,000 meters in height and due to its easy access to the base by vehicle, it represents a great possibility for mountaineers who are trying to reach a 5,000-meter summit. The origin of the expedition is the city of Salta and then San Antonio de los Cobres to continue with the acclimatization process.

Sometimes we can join this expedition with the Lullaillaco Volcano (6739 masl), one of the 10 highest mountains in America.
