One of the most iconic mountains the world, and the highest mountain in the Americas, Aconcagua (6,962m) is truly majestic. Resting peacefully in the Andes of Argentina, near the city of Mendoza, the mighty mountain looms above everything else around it. And, on this 12-day adventure, we are happy to take you to the top of this great peak.

Our trip will begin in the city of Mendoza. On the second day we will head to the Confluence camp (3,300m), where we will spend the night. The day after, while still at the camp, we will explore the area, which will help you with acclimatization.

On the fourth day of the trip, we will go to the Plaza de Mulas camp (4,350m), where we will explore and spend the night. For the following day, we will venture to the Plaza Canada Camp with our equipment before returning to the Plaza de Mulas camp for the night.

On the sixth seventh and eighth days of the trip, we will venture up to the Canada Square (4,950m) and the Condor Nest (5550m). Finally, on the ninth day of the trip, we will make our way up to the summit of Aconcagua. The ascent will start early in the morning and we will make our way to the Cholera Camp afterwards.

On the tenth and eleventh days of the trip we will return to the Plaza de Mulas and then go to Horcones (2,900m) before returning to Mendoza. The twelfth day of the trip is an extra day in case of bad weather.

Climbing Aconcagua is not an easy task. As a result, participants on this trip must have prior mountaineering experience. You should also be in excellent physical condition.
