Do you know Mount Sosneado has many interesting curiosities? Keep reading and discover them!

First of all, Mount Sosneado is one of the most uncrowded peaks of more than 5.000 meters of height despite of having a no complex access.

Besides, its location is very close to the Valley of Tears. It is a place worldwide known for being where the plane of the rugby team crashed. Moreover, in one of Mount Sosneado slopes there is still parts of that plane.

Finally, the landscape around this mount is really stunning, full of wildness and amazing summits. Join me in this 7-day expedition with a summit attempt to Mount Sosneado!

Please note that this ascent can only be done during the months of november, december, january, february and march.

Find here below a day-by-day itinerary of this program:


We will meet in El Sosneado by mid-day. You can get there easily by bus from Malargüe or San Rafael cities. A transfer will take us up to Atuel River Valley. Once we are in the missing hotel Sosneado, we continue until we are finally at the base of Colorado Valley. We’ll set up our first camp and sleep.


Here our trek gets started. We will hike up gradually until we reach to 3.300 meters high. Once we are in the northwestern face of the mountain, we establish our second base camp.


Our third camp is at 4.000 meter, on top of the valley. And there we’ll go! From such amazing viewpoint we can admire a really stunning landscape, even the way up to the Mount Sosneado summit. Rest and overnight in there.


This day will be dedicated to get acclimatized. The short walks will help us to warm up during the day. We will dinner and sleep in the same camp, ready for the most important day.


We will leave our camp behind early in the morning so that we have plenty of time to fulfill our biggest goal: getting up to 5.169 meters at Mount Sosneado Summit! Once we are there and take some pictures, we’ll return to the camp.


We’ll keep descending through the valley up to its final point. A transfer will be waiting us there in order to take us back to Malargüe city. You can rest, take a bath, dinner and sleep in a hostel or may cabins.


Last day of the program. We’ll breakfast and you are free to continue your trip or join me in other expeditions such as The Andes crossing trek.

Next departures will take place in January 2017
