Why take this tour?

This excursion is an excellent opportunity to experience high altitudes and admire the wonderful Andean landscape. El Pintor is a magnificent mountain that rises above 4,000m (13,123ft) from sea level. Of moderate technical difficulty, this colourful giant offers excellent views of deep valleys and huge neighbouring andean peaks. The ascent begins at La Parva Ski Resort. The first stage of the trek will bring us to Laguna Piuquenes sector at 3,599m (11,482ft). After a short rest here we will climb up 200m (656ft) more to a promontory named Falsa Parva. From this point we will continue for two more hours following a practically flat trail crossing by a desert and rocky landscape, to finally give our last efforts to attack the summit of this challenger. ATTENTION This is a high mountain experience that requieres good mental and physical condition. Atmospheric pressure decreases in high altitudes and may provoke altitude sickness resulting from shortage of oxygen.
