Cerro Toco (Stratovolcano - 5.604m or 18,386 ft), the Purico Complex, the Atacama desert, Antofagasta, Chile.

The view from the summit of the volcano is spectacular.

We were able to climb after 2 hours and 45 minutes. It is a climb that the physical preparation has to be perfect (snow in February, very cold at the top and strong and constant winds).

Hearing of the video on the summit of the volcano is hampered by strong winds.

We could only stay there for 20 minutes.
