Yes, for the 9-day program it is important to arrive with the acclimatization process already started. That is to say, to have already been doing some activity above 4,000 meters of altitude.

This can be done independently by traveling to the San Pedro de Atacama mountain range and doing a few day hikes and climbs, or by taking advantage of the proximity of the mountains around Santiago, such as El Plomo, Leonera, or the San José volcano in Cajón del Maipo, to do some classic mountaineering.

Another option is to extend our stay in the Atacama region and make a program of more days, but we believe that the best options are visiting other regions either independently (with our support for you to organize the trip) or accompanying you through our altitude program in Santiago!
