Surrounded by millenary trees, climbing Llaima volcano is a unique experience that most certainly is on every skier tip list. The ascent starts from the Araucarias ski resort, in which you have to follow the most common way up. Be aware that on top there are hidden crevasses that could cause an accident. There are multiple runs from the top of Llaima, the southern side is the steepest and the northern side the easiest.
Choose your line according to your level and enjoy a stonishing descent. Follow @andesmagazine on Instagram for more reviews about ski, climbing, and mountaineering routes in the South American Andes.
