Description

If you are an experienced climber or guide planning to climb Aconcagua (6960), then this full-service program is the ideal backup for your self-guided expedition. We offer the logistics and support you need for your ascent to the summit of this mythical mountain in the Andes, starting from Mendoza, Argentina.

Our company, Inka Expediciones, facilitates the organization of logistics services providing a package that covers all your needs. We have prepared a very convenient set of services for self-leaded expeditions, making the logistic arrangements for you, offering you the advantage of having complete control over your trip without having to worry about the “administrative headache” of organizing an expedition.

This means your time prior to the expedition’s departure is free, allowing you to concentrate on other things, such as raising sponsorship or simply keeping busy at work.

Our services include all the transportation, according to the schedule for the group in private vehicles; accommodation in hotels in the city and full board service in our base camps, with professional chefs,  dining domes with tables and chairs, dishes, electric lights and wooden floors.

Our chefs personally take care for all the meals to be nutritional and high in energy for your journey to the summit. As we have our own mule transport we can guarantee fresh meals because we provide daily bread, meat, eggs, fruit and vegetables. By enjoying our meals in the approaching camps you will avoid the extra weight needed to transport on the mules and also you won’t be cooking so you can take time to relax on the way to base camp. We guarantee excellent meal service!

We also offer constant communication through VHF, UHF radios, satellite and telephones; mules to carry your equipment (30 kg/person); dining tents and WC; medical equipment and assistance to get the Aconcagua Provincial Park entrance permits and facility for the storage and care of equipment.  You can check the details below.

If you would like us to make all the arrangements for your Aconcagua expedition, contact us and book your trip. Just relax and let us take care of the logistic arrangements you need for an unforgettable self-guided ascent.

We also offer guided ascents to Aconcagua, through different routes.

The tour was fantastic! We hiked from the Puna (arid and colorful landscapes, full of giant cactus named Cardones) to the Junga ( the high altitude jungle, full of flowers and irds) and loved every bit of it. The Guides, Lula, EPGAM Trekking Guide, and David, AAGM Mountain Guide, made sure we felt safe all the time. They also made sure we had good food and that all the logistics run smoothly throughout the tour. Inka's services were overall outstanding! The tents were in perfect conditions, the porters were very nice and respectful people and we felt very comfortable during the whole hike. We truly recommend this hike to anyone who enjoys being challenged but also having good services in the camps and who enjoys walking in the wild. We can also recommend Inka Exped for all the hiking and climbing tours in Argentina. They provide great services and their Team is pure amazing people. We'll be back for more!

The expedition was great. Andy was a great guide who was very attentive to all the climbers and was constantly checking how we were feeling both physically and emotionally. He was always focused on one objective, to get us all to the summit and back down safely. In this regard he would always go the extra mile! Andy is the best guide i have climbed with by far and all guides should be as professional and attentive as him. The food was fine for a non meat eater but there is only so much cheese someone can eat no matter how well it is served:grinning: The huts and tents were all good. The mountain was hard, the summit was harder! I was totally exhausted but felt great after the summit. The Hotel was good with a nice pool and Mendoza was a really nice place to be with very nice people. All in all a great trip with a great group of climbers and two of the best guides. Would I recommend this trip? simple answer is..... Hell yeahh!!

I’m writing this short review as I’m often asked by climbing friends who shall I climb with on Aconcagua? Let me tell you !hand on my heart INKA is the best on the mountain.! I have climbed across the globe Alaska, Andes, Himalaya and in the Karakoram in Pakistan. I have have utilised INKA on two occasions and I believe they have the best knowledge and logistics on the mountain. Their staff care about YOU.. as you are their number one priority. They will ensure your time on the mountain is safe and you return safe even if you don’t reach the summit. So many times I have watched operators in other countries guiding clients to the summit when they should have been turned around, this has been with drastic results. That is why I always use professional companies and word of mouth . Trust me INKA are the best. Aconcagua is a tough challenge high altitudes coupled by sometimes extreme cold , require you to be fit mentally and physically. I have in the past fell to AMS and had to turn around near a summit, that is the smart thing to do.! Better to go home and re plan , the mountain will always be there. I’ve lost friends on mountains and speak from experience. INKA guides are registered and highly experienced, they will watch you carefully and monitor your oxygen levels and general well being throughout your climb. There is an excellent set up at Plaza de Mulas where if you need a rest day you will be cared for. Many of my friends have used INKA and I will continue to recommend them for their expertise I’m writing this short review as I’m often asked by climbing friends who shall I climb with on Aconcagua?

Just one thing; Ivan don't understand my need in base camp when I ask for a single tent at this place. I think with a single tent that was more easy for me to sleep. But In generally Ivan and Juan Pedro are good boys. It's diificult for me to rate Guide and Trip. I didn't finished. I can rate only for the half trip.

My friend Marc and I hired Inka for their logistics, know how, and reputation (we were self guided). Our initial email communication with Inka was very encouraging - extremely responsive, knowledgeable and helpful! They helped us plan our itinerary, execute it, and were always available for help. The Inka staff at Hotel Ayelyn, Confluencia and Plaza de Mulas were none other than amazing! We had an absolutely great experience, and I would highly recommend them to others - whether you are looking for a guided service or just logistical help along the way, give them a chance! A special shout out to Hilda (coordinator), who was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Thanks! Aaron

I have completed an expedition to Cerro Aconcagua with Inka Expeditions. Everything was very well organized and extremely well executed. Thanks to efforts of the people in the office, the gauchos, the friendly and professional staff at the Base Camp, strong porters and our excellent guides Vito Magni and Damien Colson, 4 out 5 of us were able to reach the summit on Jan. 30/17 in difficult conditions. If anybody wants his dreams to become true, should not hesitate to contact Inka expeditions.Thank you very much to everyone...
