Cerro Blanco is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 5.161m (16,932ft) above the sea level, located in the Andes, in the Tarapacá Region of Chile. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of the country.
The road to the summit, located within the Volcán Isluga National Park, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s an old mine trail. The road is impassable in winters. The climb is simply terrible, with a notorius lack of oxygen that tests the organisms and a high degree of steepness. 4x4 with high clearance vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Most people feel altitude sickness at around 2,500-2,800 meters. Near the pass, oxygen is in short supply.
