A 20-day program to discover one of the most stunning places for climb lovers: Tupungato Volcano A great experience with certified mountains guides.
Jan, Feb, Nov, Dec
Tupungato Volcano is located in the Andes range, more precisely in the border between Argentina and Chile. Because of its altitude, 6570 meters, is one of highest peaks in South America.
I propose a 20-day program in which we’ll climb the incredible and technical Tupungato and also enjoy beautiful landscapes it offers. Climbers must have prior mountaineering experience and a good physical condition.
– Day 1: Meeting at Santiago de Chile. Night in a hotel.
– Day 2: We drive to Cajon del Maipo where we enter to Colorado valley, more precisely to Chacayar. From there we hike to Baños Azules where we spend the night.
– Day 3 – 12: The acclimatization process starts with a hiking to Base Camp. Afterwards, we move to Camp 1 and then, Camp 2 where we can enjoy amazing views of Cerro Polleras and Chimbote. Lastly, we climb to Camp 3. The high Camp is the last one before our great climbing.
– Day 13 – 15: Tupungato volcano climbing. The exactly day will depend on weather conditions.
– Day 16: Descend to Base Camp.
– Day 17 – 20: We descend to Colorado valley with mules carrying our gear in 2 days. Return to Santiago de Chile where we’ll celebrate. The next day, we take our flights back to home.

From the start Aventuras Patagonicas was welcoming, which set the trip up on the right foot. The guides, Wes, Lucia and Sebastian were all excellent and worked very hard to get the group of climbers safely up and down the mountain. The food was excellent and well organized. The gear provided on the mountain (tents) were also of good quality. I would climb again with Patagonicas.
Great guides, great equipment, amazed about how good food was. All round a very experienced and top end operator who know what they are doing and will maximise your chances of getting to the summit. Reaching top Aconcagua was one of greatest highlights of my life thank you Aventuras Patagonicas.
I did a 20 day climb of Aconcagua with this company. The guides were excellent and made the trip as enjoyable as possible. We had hot meals every evening and morning. Aconcagua is a hard mountain and it takes a great deal of effort to reach the top. The guides at Patagonicas are committed to each client's safety on the mountain. I would recommend them over any other company on the mountain.
