Nevado Ojos del Salado

This giant holds two world records: at 6,891 meters above sea level, it is the highest volcano on the planet, and one of its craters is home to the highest lake in the world.  This lake is situated at 6,390 meters and, paradoxically, nobody has baptized it.  Despite its cold temperatures, wind, and low pressure, the ascent is not considered to be difficult.  However, special measures must be taken to reach the last few meters.
