The Vacas Valley Traverse Route
We love climbing Aconcagua 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 gives 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
If you have some altitude experience like Kilimanjaro, Island peak or Mera Peak and used to carrying a weighted backpack then this could be the trip for you. We have a well established team on the mountain and we always send a western guide. Give yourself more comfort and a more enjoyable overall experience on one of the 7 summits.
