Description

Would you like to join a thrilling mountaineering adventure in the Central Andes? Then come with me on this Cerro El Plata expedition starting from Mendoza.

Cerro El Plata is a 6100 m giant located in the Central Andes. This stunning peak is one of the highest in Mendoza and is considered an amazing mountaineering feat that many tackle to prepare for Aconcagua.

On this multi-day adventure, I will guide you slowly but surely, to make sure you achieve the summit and revel at the awe-inspiring views from the top. The program I propose is designed to maximize your safety and ensure that you have enough acclimatization time to make the experience enjoyable. The climb itself will take around 7 days, but I have scheduled in 2 extra days in case we need more rest time or weather conditions delay our adventure.

This is a challenging climb. You need to have prior mountaineering experience to join and a good fitness level. Furthermore, I will require a medical certificate from you before we set off on our adventure. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you every step of the way.

So, are you ready for a thrilling mountaineering adventure in the Central Andes? Then book your place now and join me on this Cerro El Plata itinerary to the top of this beautiful peak.

Or, if you prefer, you can also join me on a shorter 2-day trek to a 4000 m peak in the Mendoza region!

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
