Climbing Mercedario

Explore-share.com helps you book your next Mountain Climbing trip in Mercedario.

In the southwest of San Juan, a province of Argentina, people meet up to climb the fabulous Cerro Mercedario, one of the five peaks of the powerful but unexplored Ramada mountain range. It is the biggest glaciar valley of the region with summits that surpass 6000 meters in height, as it’s actually the case of the Mercedario (6770 m). The isolation and remoteness of this peak make it a perfect mountain to live an adventure with the only company of nature and, of course, a local guide who show you the best way to reach up there. Explore-Share only promotes trips led by certified mountain guides.

Cerro Mercedario expedition in 12 days

We went to Mercedario in December. The expedition went extremely well - from picking us up at a different airport as originally planned, to the transportation to Laguna Blanca, the expedition, picking us up afterwards, the hotel "El Aleman" in Barreal (which is outstanding, with a fabulous German owner, and ideal after an expedition for many reasons) to dropping us off in San Juan. Everyone involved (including Anibal, who is a great guy and had also excellent information about Argentina in general) was very friendly, helpful and professional. The communication with Gabi was excellent and always prompt.   Weny is a very good and experienced guide, has been very concerned about our wellbeing, had always had good information about the weather and the ideal time frame to summit and made solid decisions. She is very friendly and helpful and made sure we know everything important to stay healthy and avoid altitude sickness. Her English is very good, she kept reminding us to drink enough, and did her best to provide us with good food, which was very important.    We would certainly not have been able to reach the summit without her guidance, especially as we would not have not know, how to best acclimatize and not having been able to judge the all important wind conditions on both highcamps and the summit day appropriately.
