The most elevated lake on Earth is situated in Chili at the east slopes of volcano Ojos del Salado. The "Normal Route" to the volcano summit passes a bit west of the lake shore.
On April 21, 2007, the chileans driver Gonzalo Bravo and his co-driver Eduardo Canales Moya set a new world record and their modified 4x4 Suzuki SJ reached an altitude of 6 688 meters. The previous record of 6 646 meters was set by a German expedition just a month earlier. It is curious that to achieve this numbers the Germans needed support of 17 people and 770 000 USD.
Volcano Ojos del Salado is the highest mountain in the world below the snow line. Thus despite an elevation of 6 893 meters above sea level, the summit of the volcano has no permanent snow cap. Due to the unique region's climate the accumulation of solid precipitation at the top of volcano doesn't prevail over its melting and evaporation.
