Thanks for the vote Saintgrizzly!

The area is rough and you really have to make sure you have enough water, as there's very little around. Hard winds, strong sun and fast changing weather are other factors to consider.

Thanks for the nice comment and the vote Dean. The Puna is a rough, but also very interesting place.

Great page.



6000 m and no permanent snow? I see the peak is at 27 degree latitude. Is it the latitude or the desert that causes no snow. I think Bolivian/Peruvian Peaks that are closer to the equator have permanent snow.

Nader,if you are curious, the Atacama Desert is the driest desert in the world, and there are even some places have never recorded precipitation. The Atacama also has the highest snowline in the world, along with some places in Tibet.



In Ecuador, Rwensoris (Africa), and New Guinea, all on the equator, the snowline is 14,700-16,000 feet (4500-4900 meters), far lower than it is in the Atacama.

Thanks for the vote Nader and thanks for explaining the situation Scott.

The Puna/Atacama, together with the Lunggar Shan in Tibet have the highest snowlines. It's a bit crazy...6000 meters and no trace of snow!
