Is it possible to climb with kids? I have 3 boys ages 7, 11 and 13, good hikers. We expect to be in pucon in mid december.
Yes on a day of good weather. The climb is do able and not hard. Of course people should bds relatively fit. The extent of climb can also be reduced from 5 hours to 4 hours if you pay extra for the chair lift.
The hike at the end of October was quite difficult. Please keep in mind that you start at 1100m and the summit is at 2840m and all the time you have to hike in 1-30m snow. I recommend contacting Summit Chile for further advice.
