  • 100 m / 328 ft

Drive up to Atacama Camp, at 5 200. Driving looks like a high altitude safari than a regular drive. Make a stop before arriving at base camp and take a short walk up to 1-2 kilometers - it improves your acclimatization.

    Day 2
  • 7 500 m / 24 606 ft
  • 700 m / 2 297 ft

Acclimatization hike and carry loads to High Camp, Refuge Tejos, at 5 900. Perhaps this shelter is the highest mountain hut in the world! You'll cache your stuff at the hut and then go back down to the base camp. Approach time is very depends on your acclimatization but usually takes up to 5 hours.
