Tomas, a EPGAMT certified mountain guide, and member of the AAGM, wants to guide you on an amazing 6-day trek to the Plaza De Mulas to see Mount Aconcagua
Jan, Feb, Mar, Nov, Dec
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.

Mountain Guide - EPGAMT - Argentina
I was born in Patagonia, Argentina and formed at an early age as a climber in the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Currently I completed a large number of rock and ice climbing routes, backcountry skiing and ascents in many mountains around the world such as Mt. Lhotse (8.516 mts.), the 4th highest peak in the world, without using supplemental oxygen (May, 2012).
I'm a certified Mountain Guide from the EPGAMT and a member of the Argentinian Mountain Guides Association (AAGM) and work on Mt. Aconcagua, which I had repeatedly ascended, as well as in other peaks in the Central Andes, Patagonia, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and in The Himalayas in Nepal.
During the winter season, I practice backcountry skiing, mostly on the volcanoes in Patagonia, where I can offer you different adventures, according to your level (beginner, learner or advanced learner).
I feel very privileged to work as a mountain guide, to do the job that I love, and to be able to share it with people that have the same passion.
Join my expeditions and I will provide you a high standard of safety and personal attention!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
