A very special mountain


Mount Sosneado has striking peculiarities. It is one of the mountains over 5000 meters less visited although its access is not so complicated. It is located opposite the famous Valley of Tears, where the famous rubgiers airplane crashed. At the same time on one of its slopes remains oarts of a  plane that plunged many years ago . The landscape that surrounds it has a singular and haunting beauty.Our expedition proposes to  know its wilderness while trying to reach his prized summit over 5100 meters.
