Description

Join me on a 6-day trek to the Plaza De Mulas (4,350m).

Not far from the city of Mendoza, we will enter the Aconcagua provincial park.

In the heart of the Central Andes, you will see some incredible things. Starting with the biggest mountain in the Americas, Mount Aconcagua. Within the Plaza De Mulas base camp, you will have a chance to see this mythical mountain’s sleek, 3000 meter high glacial southern face. Besides the amazing views, you will also see the Horcones Superior Glacier. You will also have the chance to meet and talk to other adventures, many preparing to scale the great Mount Aconcagua.

After leaving the city of Mendoza we will go to Penitentes. From there it’s off to the Confluencia camp. After that we will trek to the Plaza Francia before reaching the Plaza de Mulas. After 2 days, we will descend to Horcones before returning to Mendoza.

At the Plaza De Mulas you will have a front row seat to one of the greatest shows in the world. The Central Andes. You will see peaks in every direction. You will see the kind of beauty painters spend a lifetime trying to capture. So join me on this amazing journey.

I will be awaiting your message.

Also, if you are interested in a more challenging expedition in the same area, but for a shorter period of time, you can join me on this trip.
