Description

In the local dialect of kunza, it means something like “Mountain of the rain”, and stands out for being one of the highest mountains in front of San Pedro de Atacama with almost 6.000 meters and besides having access by an old path of sulfur source reaching the base at 5.600 meters altitude.

It is located around 60 kilometers northeast of San Pedro de Atacama, considering that the first 40 kilometers of road are in good condition, the last 20 km the progress is very slow. A 4 × 4 vehicle journey takes about 2 hours.

ITINERARY
Once at the base, the ascension route is faced by the south face of the mountain, with a not very clear alley and with a slope of about 25º degrees that rises by the eastward first, climbing one of shoulder of the Sairecabur , to later have access through a strip of about 250 meters and with 40º degrees rise with a unclear marked trail where you climb up looking for large rocks to walk, which makes that part of the climb a little easier . The last part of the climb is fairly quiet in terms of terrain, but no less tiring, considering the height and speed of the climb.

In resume, the Sairecabur is a mountain where acclimatization and physical conditions are necessary; the climb is fast itself, takes average 2 to 3 hours, but probably the biggest difficulty is the height at the base, which is very high, where begins the ascent to 5.600 meters. Experience on steep hikes are needed.
