San Fransisco - an easy 6000m volcano on the boarder between Argentina and Chile

This volcano is right next to the the san fransisco pass, already reaching 4700m, between the Fiambala region of Argentina and the Copiapo region in Chile. A vehicle can get you even higher (around 5100m, depending on the vehicle) such as to make it a less than 1000m ascent to the summit reaching 6030m altitude. The views are stunning, and if you pay attention you will notice the remains of 2 pre inca shelters, which where most probably used during ceremonies to the sun god.
