Hiking in Mendoza

You can be remembered as the brave who crossed the Andes from Mendoza...

The main star of Mendoza is undoubtedly Mount Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the southern hemisphere and the entire American continent. It is not necessary to reach its peak of almost 7000 meters in height to enjoy a challenging hiking program. You can ascend to its camp sites at different levels, such as Plaza Francia, Plaza de Mulas or the Base Camp. In addition, in Mendoza you have many other alternatives to live one or several days of pure hiking: Potrerillos, Confluencia, Tunuyan and endless trails along the Cordon del Plata. Finally, if you want to stay in the history of the bravest, you can not miss a guided crossing of the Andes, from Mendoza to Santiago or other incredible Chilean locations.
