This Three 4-thousander ascents in Mendoza is your chance to live an intense adventure in the Andes!

And the way to get it done is to go deep into the beautiful Cordón del Plata Provincial Park. This natural paradise is located 80 km west of Mendoza and was created to protect the great amount of permanent ice, glaciers and andean biodiversity. Because of its great diversity it's one of the most important biological area in the andean tundra.

Up in the park, we'll camp in Veguitas camp site (3200 m) from where there is a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains. And from here we'll hike to mount San Bernardo (4200 m) one day and to mounts Adolfo Calle (4200 m) and Stepanek (4100) the next day.

Although this ascents aren't technically difficult, they required to be in good shape and a bit of previous mountaineering experience. It will take us between 4 and 7 days depending on the weather conditions and your acclimatization.

So please, if you think you're up to the task and you're ready for a real adventure, send me a request and I'll guide you to this Three 4-thousander ascents in Mendoza.

About the guide

Mountain Leader

EPGAMT Mountain guide from Argentina.

The mountain is my workplace and space to enjoy what I like to do ... mountaineering.

I climbedd and promoted various mountains and volcanoes such as: Aconcagua , Ojos del Salado, Pissis , Walter Penck , Incahuasi, Plata, Rincon, Vallecitos , etc.

The mountain can find oneself, to rediscover the essence and every moment. It is a natural place that transmits balance, harmony, tranquility and at the same time, tests us and motivates us to self-improvement. The mountain is accessible to all, just enough to take the first step ... we offer a different experience to share.
