Aconcagua Treks

The Vacas Valley Traverse Route

We love Aconcagua expeditions on the Vacas Valley route. The trek into Plaza Argentina Base Camp has less people and great trekking route.  We are all about having the best experience possible. We have showers, chef, Wi-Fi and comfortable Base Camp.  Aconcagua is technically straight forward but the altitude, weather and cold temperatures can cause a wide range of challenges. 

Aconcagua Requires More Acclimatization

The first time I climbed Aconcagua was on a 14 day itinerary, this was a big mistake on a poorly managed itinerary.  Over the years we learned that more acclimatization and more contingency days offers you the best chance at successfully reaching the summit.

Once we reach Base Camp we have four nights for further acclimatization. Once we move higher on the mountain we will have 6 days of carrying our personal gear and equipment higher on the mountain. We will have a rest day in Camp 2 5,500m/ 18,044 feet before moving to Camp 3 and our summit attempt.

Previous Altitude Experience

When thinking of climbing Aconcagua, It is important to have some altitude experience. Having climbed peaks like Kilimanjaro, Island peak or Mera Peak and used to carrying a weighted backpack, then Aconcagua could be the trip for you.

We have a well established team on the mountain with highly experienced guides. Give yourself more comfort and a more enjoyable overall experience on one of the 7 summits.
