Description

Highlighted by the incredible Aconcagua Mountain (6,962m), the Aconcagua Provincial Park in the Argentinean province of Mendoza is a sensational area to explore. And, on this 6-day expedition, I would like to guide you through the park, with camping stops at the Confluencia (3,400m) and the Plaza de Mulas (4,300m). Furthermore, during this trip, you will even get to visit the south wall of Aconcagua, and ascend the nearby Bonete peak (5,000m).

The highest peak in the Americas, Aconcagua is beautiful regardless of where you get to view it. Fortunately, during this 6-day expedition, you will get to view it, admire it and photograph it from a number of amazing viewpoints.

The camps at Confluencia and Plaza de Mulas are both very popular. They also provide access to a number of wonderful areas in the Aconcagua Provincial Park, all of which are well worth exploring. Moreover, due to the popularity, don’t be surprised if you get to meet and chat with climbers from every corner of the world.

While not a very difficult trip, it is still important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition.

A great trek to see an incredible mountain, this 6-day expedition will take your breath away. To be a part of it, please send a request. I look forward to guiding you.

About the guide

EPGAMT Mountain guide from Argentina.

The mountain is my workplace and space to enjoy what I like to do ... mountaineering.

I climbedd and promoted various mountains and volcanoes such as: Aconcagua , Ojos del Salado, Pissis , Walter Penck , Incahuasi, Plata, Rincon, Vallecitos , etc.

The mountain can find oneself, to rediscover the essence and every moment. It is a natural place that transmits balance, harmony, tranquility and at the same time, tests us and motivates us to self-improvement. The mountain is accessible to all, just enough to take the first step ... we offer a different experience to share.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
