Photograph of the week: An arduous ascent of one of Chile’s most active volcanoes

This arduous ascent of one of Chile’s most active volcanoes, Villarrica, challenges the extremes of endurance for both young and old. Climbing in knee to waist-deep snow up to the 2,847 metre summit reveals a stark backdrop of freshly powered snow, which contrasts against a royal blue horizon. The dynamic panoramas during this climb reveal a stunning natural beauty high amongst the clouds. You experience the surrealness of nature from the surrounding mountain peaks, ever-present throughout this journey. Villarrica Thank you to Nilla Palmer of Nilla’s Photography for the photograph.

  1. Thanks for publishing my photo and accompanying words on your blog! It was indeed an arduous climb!
    This day sees you starting at 5am and not finishing until 7pm. There’s a few stops whilst climbing, but it’s not for the unfit.
