Volcán Apagado

Apagado Volcano

Volcán Apagado is a volcano at an elevation of 5.343m (17,529ft) above the sea level, located on the border of Chile (Región de Antofagasta) and Bolivia (Potosi Department).

The road to the summit is rocky, sand and gravel. Menacing desert terrain with numerous steep, rocky climbs. Large, sharp rocks require tight maneuvering, increasing the likelihood of tire damage. High clearance, skid plates and differential lockers required. No stock vehicles. A complex network of poorly defined roads makes route-finding very difficult, even following a GPS tracklog. Carry plenty of water. Never drive this trail alone. It’s an old mine road.
