Incredible place, dreamy sightseeing
Feb 2015 • Friends
I went to the Domuyo Volcano willing to trek on to the summit, with two friends and a mountain guide. From the beginning, all the road from Chos Malal to the volcano's base is incredible, the different landscapes which the road drives you through is amazing. Then, the 4 day-long trekking was worth it, with marvelous sights of glaciers and all the volcanic "pampa" to the north. This mountain, "el techo de la patagonia" (the patagonian roof, meaning its the highest mountain in the area, with 4700 m) is almost as high as the Mont Blanc in the Alps, but the place is completely surrounded by nothing, desolated, empty, and that's the main cause of its eternal beauty.

Even the drive to the volcano's base is worth it, if you are willing to have a different experience in a god's forgotten place.
