A group of six Argentines climbed the mountain on November 25, but only three of them returned three days later. The others decided to stay in the mountain range.

After losing contact with the group, a private helicopter was used to inspect the camp at an altitude of about 4,800 meters, but it only found the tent of the missing people.


On December 2, the returned climbers submitted a missing persons report to Chilean police, who found the bodies on Monday, at an altitude of 5,600 metres.

Temperatures below -10 degrees Celsius and strong winds made the search for missing persons difficult and hampered the recovery of bodies, which were supposed to be recovered on Wednesday (6), according to the authorities.

“There are forecasts tomorrow [terça-feira (5)] Snow on the mountain range […] “On Wednesday there will be a meteorological window open for the unloading of bodies,” explained Miguel Muñoz, regional director of the National Disaster Prevention and Response Service.
