    Vulkan Lascar

    November 4, 2019 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 1 °C

    Nach zwei Täg Nütmache ide Hitz in San Pedro de Atacama hemer d Idee gha, chli id Höchi z go zum Wandere und üs abchüele.
    Also hend mir üs informiert, wases für Tageswanderige git. D Möglichkeite sind wenig gsi: zwei Vulkän uf je 5600 müM und eine uf über 6000 müM. Übertribe müemers jo nöd gad, drum hemer de uf "nur" 5600 müM höch aktiv Vulkan Laskar usgsuecht. Mit ere chline Gruppe hemer üs uf de Weg gmacht und sind mitem Guide vorus im Schneggetempo det ufe glaufe, damit au jo all vode Gruppe noche möget (so extrem langsam simmer beid nu NIE e Berg druf). So hend sich die afängliche Bedenke vode Höchi schnell i Luft ufglöst und mir sind ohni ein Schweisstropfe z verlüüre dobe acho. Det hemer nöd nur e schöne Usblick uf anderi Vulkän und d Wüesti gha, au e riesige Krater vom Laskar het sich zeigt. S letzt mol isch de Vulkan ... usbroche, Rauchwölkli gseht mer aber jetzt no überall ufstiige.
    S isch iidrücklich gsi zums gseh, aber...
    ... tout est sec!

    Vulcano Lascar

    March 23, 2017 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Picked up at 5am we had a 2 hour drive to the basecamp of the 6000m vulcano where we had breakfast, drank Coca tea (good for the height) and watched the sunrise. Amazing landscape somewhere in the desert! As I ve been travelling for a long time I did not have much winter clothes with me. Unexpected -5 degrees made it a very cold morning until we started our hike. With 2 other guys and the guide I started my journey all the way up to to the still active Lascar vulcano. The altitude makes it a very difficult walk. And besides that I did not have any gloves, which made it also freezing cold and i could not use any sticks for the way up. I was probably the worst prepared guy walking up this giant mountain. But after 4-5 hours we made it all the way up to the top and it was worth all the suffering. Totally exhausted I enjoyed the amazing view up there before we had to make our way down again.

    After this great journey we had a few beers in the evening while watching Chile-Argentina with some locals. I decided to leave the desert in the next morning and head further down south to Valparaiso.
