Tortolas lies just north of the Agua Negra pass on the Chile-Argentina border. It is an easy ascent, though quite a remote peak.

We can organise guided ascents of this peak. For details of how to climb Tortolas and neighbouring peaks in the southern Puna de Atacama and Agua Negra area please see our guidebook available in English, Spanish, Polish and French editions, direct from us or from all good bookshops and mountaineering shops.
