Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec
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!
- Two (2) nights accommodation at a three-star hotel in Mendoza City (prices based on double or triple occupancy), breakfast included. - One (1) night accommodation at Penitentes, breakfast, and dinner included. - Tents.
About the client-guide ratio:
Up to 3 clients: 1 Guide for the whole expedition 4 clients: 1 Guide for the whole expedition + 1 assistant for Base Camp-Summit-Base Camp From 5 to 8 clients: 2 Guides for the whole expedition 9 clients: 2 Guides for the whole expedition + 1 assistant for Base Camp-Summit-Base Camp From 10 to 12 clients: 3 Guides for the whole expedition
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.

Fue una hermosa experiencia de la cual guardaré bellos recuerdos y lazos. Al recordar volveré a viajar a las montañas de la Cordillera amada. Gracias por brindarme seguridad y confort en la realización de mis sueños.

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!!
It was a true life experience. I enjoy every moment of it. Our guides were excellent and inka facilities for this journey were up to par with what I expected.
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?

The guide was not Sebastian Tetilla but Javier Guiterez and Matias Hidalgo Nicosia
They totally rock! They made everything to be perfect. Best in town if you are thinking about Aconcagua. Professionals, they are passionate about what they do. Long story short: contact them and let the game begin!
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.
Extremely happy with the whole experience. These guys will go an extra mile to help your dreams come true. You can book it with full confidence!
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
Great experience !!! Every thing was was perfect! From the people in the office, to the staff on the mountain and the very professional guide. Anybody did his best to give me my perfect experience!!! Thank you
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...
