Description

Aconcagua is one of the most majestic mountains on Earth! So don’t miss out this opportunity to reach its summit on this 17 days ascent via the Normal Route.

Cerro Aconcagua is a magnificent peak in the province of Mendoza, in Argentina. It rises above the 6,962 meters over the Central Andes. And it is the highest mountain in America. Thus, it offers some of the most incredible views from its top.

The journey to get to Aconcagua will be an unforgettable adventure as well. As we will pass by different spots that are wonderful on their own, such as the Penitentes ski resort, Plaza de Mulas and Plaza Canada. Moreover, there are several glaciers across its terrain, making this a true exciting trip.

Then, the normal route we’ll take to Aconcagua’s summit is amazing. It is one of the most famous ones. And it will allow us to enjoy the mesmerizing sceneries and get acclimatized as we ascend.

Also, I have set some days for the sole purpose of resting and acclimatization. Being such a high peak, ascending Aconcagua will require all our effort. But don’t worry. I will follow you all the way to the top, to make sure you are safe, while having a fantastic time.

So if you want to join this expedition, just send me a request. It would be my absolute pleasure to be your guide on this marvellous adventure.
