Mount LLullaillaco (6739 m): the Inca´s sacred dream

Mount LLullaillaco is an active vulcano than arises in the border between Chile and Argentina. This isolated and remote giant is the highest archeological site on the world. In its summit, the bodies of three incas children were found some years ago, among ruins with funerary and religious purposes. The nortwest route, in the chilean side of the mountain, is a straightforward but demanding climb, on a glacier and very rocky terrains.
