Mount El Plata climb: a one-week guided expedition


Join Agustin in this guided ascent to the most representative mountaineering spot in Mendoza: Mount El Plata. With the best mountain guide, you'll discover this stunning sub-range of the Andes.


7 Days

Jan - May, Sep - Dec


If you are looking for a good mountaineering trip with a local mountain guide, you are in the right place. And, what’s more, Mount El Plata is the perfect peak for you.

Mount El Plata is the highest peak of Cordon del Plata, a sub-range of the Andes. Besides, many climbers consider this mountain is probably the best mountaineering option in Mendoza.

Mount El Plata is also chosen by mountaineers who want an acclimatization climb before the biggest goal of South America: Mount Aconcagua.

That’s why I have prepared this climbing trip specially for those expecting their first challenge upper to 6.000 meters high or a warm up for future objectives.

Mount El Plata is really iconic in the mountaineering world. Moreover, a lot of worldwide athletes come to Argentina to live this ascent, as one of the greatest challenges of the Andes.

So, I want to invite you to a 7-day guided expedition to this summit. Besides El Plata, there are other interesting peaks to climb. For example, Pico Plata (a bit less high mountain) or Mount Vallecitos.

I also have to mention that once at Mount El Plata summit, you’ll admire one of the most perfect views of the Andean peaks:

  • Tupungato

  • Cerro Polleras

  • Cerro Negro

  • Cerro Pabellon

  • Ameghino Peak

  • Cerro Mercedario

  • And the star of the landscape: Mount Aconcagua

Here I leave next departure dates but you can ask me for other days or what’s more, for a private expedition.

November 10th – December 1st – January 10th – February 12th.

As your guide, I can guarantee the best assistance during the entire trip. Besides, I know the region very well and I can make you take the best from this experience.

Don’t hesitate and contact me now. Let’s do this Andean climbing together.
