Lanín Volcano takes us to the roof of the Araucanía region. With its 3,747 MASL, it is more demanding physically and normally presents a two-day adventure in the mountains. Approaching the base of its giant cone, we cross landscapes surrounded by forests and lagoons, discovering incredible panoramic views. From our camp, we can admire the beautiful colors of the sunset and await the first light of dawn, when we face the challenge of reaching the highest point of Araucanía, the Chile-Argentina binational summit of the Lanín Volcano.
Before dawn, we will have a nourishing breakfast and prepare our equipment. With the first light of the day, we will start the hike toward the summit of the Lanín Volcano. We’ll get through the second plateau in search of an extensive snow cover that will guide us to approximately 3,500 MASL. There we’ll recover to face the last section of approximately 40 minutes until the summit. As we get closer, we will begin to see part of the Argentine pampas and from the summit, we will be able to appreciate the panoramic view of Chilean and Argentinean strikingly different landscapes.
The descent will be along the same route, passing through our camp to reenergize, pick up the equipment, and continue toward the parking lot. The estimated time from the summit to the parking lot is 7 hours.
