The Payachatas (twins) are placed face to face. One of them is the Parinacota and the other one is the Pomerape. They are located in the National Park Sajama near the Chilean border. The slope is relatively slight.
The Parinacota is the typical volcano in almost perfect cone shape. Its ascension from a technical point of view is easy; however it constitutes a long journey in the height. Therefore only time is required to ascend the 1230 meters of difference. The crater of the Parinacota is magnificent.
