Description

Are you looking for a thrilling outdoor adventure in Argentina? Then join me for this 2-day trek to the summit of Mount Champaqui. Don’t miss your chance!

Mount Champaqui (2884 m) is a mountain in western Argentina. Its name, in an indigenous dialect, means “water in the head” and refers to a lake located near its top. Part of the Sierras Grandes range, this mount is the highest peak in the province of Cordoba.

On this program, we will meet in Cordoba City and after a 3-hour transfer we will be at the starting point of our trek. Our 2-day hike to the summit of Champaqui is not technically difficult but requires a good fitness level. We will walk 36km with 1800m of elevation gain. At the top, you will be rewarded with panoramic views of the Pampas! In addition, we will spend one night at a charming mountain hut or a family house where we will have the chance to taste delicious local food!

So, if you want to reach the highest point in Cordoba, please get in touch with me. Let’s enjoy an amazing hiking adventure in Argentina!

I also offer outdoor adventures in Mendoza. Take a look, for example, at my Trekking to “Confluencia” Base Camp.

About the guide

I was born in Córdoba, Argentina, where I was able to venture into mountaineering more than ten years ago. I took my first steps in the Sierras de Córdoba, and from there, I set out to explore higher mountains.
Five years ago, I achieved my dreams when I came to Mendoza to become a professional mountain guide and earn a living doing what I love. Two years from now, we created our own adventure tourism company in Mendoza.
For the last 3 years, I have been working in a foundation, as an instructor in first aid and rescue in wild areas, training government agencies, guides, etc. I have made Advanced emergency medical technician in Buenos Aires, with real ambulance hours.

Join me in one of my programs and discover the Andes with me.
