Description

Would you like to join an 18-day ladies’ only adventure to the summit of the highest mountain in South America? Then follow Poppy on an unforgettable Women’s Aconcagua Expedition and discover the wonders of the Andes!

At 6,960.8 m (22,837 ft), Aconcagua is the highest mountain in the Americas and one of the Seven Summits. Climbing this big friendly Andean giant is a feat that any mountaineering enthusiast must tackle at least once in a lifetime. It is not technically challenging but it is a physically demanding ascent that requires a good fitness level and proper acclimatization.

This 18-day Aconcagua ascent is designed for women. It will be led by   EPGAMT certified local guide Poppy who was the first woman to summit Aconcagua in winter and has climbed to the top of this mountain 23 times!

The program will follow an 18-day itinerary via the Normal Route. During the first days, acclimatization treks to Plaza Francia will serve to prepare the group. Then, we’ll trek to Plaza de Mulas while enjoying the beautiful Andean landscapes and start climbing Aconcagua.

Of course, a good fitness level is a must and you can contact us in advance to put you in touch with a trainer if you need a program designed just for you in order to prepare for the ascent. No technical mountaineering skills are required to climb Aconcagua.

So, are you ready to join this empowering women’s Aconcagua expedition? Then contact us now and let’s start planning an unforgettable ascent!

Or join our regular 18-day Aconcagua Climbing program for both men and women.

Should you hire the help of a porter? If you have never carried a backpack of 20kgs over 5000 or 6000 meters, you have to know that it's a very demanding physical activity. You need to be very well trained. Otherwise, we recommend you hire the services of a personal porter to have a better chance of reaching the top. It is very common to hire a porter (around 1000USD). If you do that, you'll carry a backpack of around 35-60 liters.

Trash and personal waste: It is mandatory to remove everything from the mountain. You can't leave food behind just because you are exhausted from carrying it. So please think about this carefully when organizing your backpack. The same happens with trash and personal waste: nothing can stay in High Camps.
