In this contribution we report on a transition to high-dimensional chaos through three-frequency quasiperiodic behavior. The resulting chaotic attractor has a one positive and two null Lyapunov exponents. The transition occurs in the point in which two symmetry related three-dimensional tori merge in a crisis-like bifurcation.
