Description

The idea of this expedition is to discover the Mount Gorra Blanca (2907 m). This mountain is located at the border of Argentina and Chile. We will leave from El Chaltén.

Gorra Blanca is a real limit between the Southern Patagonian Ice Field and the valleys with beech woods and Mountain Rivers. In fact, it stands up as a bastion and is the most identifiable mountain north from Marconi Pass.

This Patagonian mountain is truly beautiful. In addition, the views along the way and from the summit are unbelievable!

If you are looking for a challenging trip please contact me! You will certainly be amazed by the gorgeous landscapes of Patagonia.

I also offer many other climbs in Patagonia, for example as I mentioned Marconi pass.

Accommodation

Camping or in mountain hut.

About the guide

guide profile img

Since 1985 we have been operating the best trekking programs in southern Patagonia. We are always looking for new itineraries, unique expeditions, little known spots, and we offer the highest quality outdoor activities in the area... A good example of this are our classic Ice Field Expeditions that have been running with great success for many years.

Our mountaineering origin made us choose this pristine part of the Andes; Southern Patagonia is a place ruled by immense glaciers, rough weather, and mountains such as Mt Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, a place not to miss.
We hope you join us in one of our programs so our guides can show you what Patagonia is about. We offer the best hotels, lodges and camping arrangements to suit everyone.
