    First of all, we meet in Santiago de Chile where we spend a night in a hotel.  The next days, we start climbing La Paloma and El Altar peaks. From the base we can appreciate beautiful landscapes with its glaciers and surrounding mountains.

    After 4 climbing days, we return to Santiago for take a rest and prepare ourselves to our last objective, El plomo peak. From its top we will enjoy incredible views of other peaks such as the Aconcagua, Juncal or Tupungato. What is more, from there we’ll see an ancient Inca sanctuary.

    Finally we descend to Base camp and return to Santiago where we’ll celebrate our summits climb. Next day we take flights back to home.

    What People are Saying about Rodrigo Mujica


    From the start Aventuras Patagonicas was welcoming, which set the trip up on the right foot. The guides, Wes, Lucia and Sebastian were all excellent and worked very hard to get the group of climbers safely up and down the mountain. The food was excellent and well organized. The gear provided on the mountain (tents) were also of good quality. I would climb again with Patagonicas.

    Great guides, great equipment, amazed about how good food was. All round a very experienced and top end operator who know what they are doing and will maximise your chances of getting to the summit. Reaching top Aconcagua was one of greatest highlights of my life thank you Aventuras Patagonicas.

    I did a 20 day climb of Aconcagua with this company. The guides were excellent and made the trip as enjoyable as possible. We had hot meals every evening and morning. Aconcagua is a hard mountain and it takes a great deal of effort to reach the top. The guides at Patagonicas are committed to each client\'s safety on the mountain. I would recommend them over any other company on the mountain.
