We visited the park as part of an expedition to summit Aconcagua. The Andes and their vastness, their colors and impressive glaciers are a feast for the eyes and the soul. I would love to return immediately. If you have time (3days or so) I'd advise to make the trekking to one of the basecamps. The scenery gets increasingly wild... More

I took a two week guided backpacking trek through the park culminating in summitting Aconcagua Jan 2015. The climbing permit, guides and various fees were expensive but the trek was amazing and challenging. Expect very windy conditions, cold nights at altitude and very little scenery other than grand mountains. Also, the drive from Mendoza is very picturesque. Be sure to... More

If you want to walk in front of a giant go to Aconcagua park. Don't forget to bring some hot clothes as park base is at 3000 meters. very windy!

My boyfriend and I did the DIY version of the trek and decided for 3 days rather than 1 or 7. Took 3 hours to hike up to base camp (Confluencia) on the first day, after getting the 11am bus from Mendoza. Took our own tent and food. Then we trekked to Plaza Francia on the second day, taking 8.5hours... More

When you arrive, go in the visitors' station. You can get a map and an explanation of your options. This is also the last bathroom option. We were advised to take the one hour walk- which is circular. Kids under 12 don't pay. We did the walk which was easy and beautiful. Many spots to stop and take pictures

This is a must see attraction for everyone in Mendoza or Chile. The park is located about 180km from downtown Mendoza. The standard sight tour costs about 2 USD that can be paid in the park entrance. Hiking and climbing permits can only be obtained in the tourism offices in Mendoza and can cost up to 800 USD in the... More

My husband and I recently visited this amazing place. We had a wonderful tour guide, Carolina from Ketek, which made the experience so much better. This is an area of outstanding beauty and tranquility. There are options for different levels of hiking depending on ability and how you feel. This is definitely worth seeing when in Mendoza or surrounding area

We came to Aconcagua to climb the mountain & try to summit. We trekked in to Plaza de las Mulas and from there, stayed at the base camp as we acclimated. There are many mountaineering groups in Aconcagua to help you to summit. It's expensive to buy a permit during the "high season" (Dec 15- Jan 15), but your permit... More

We booked a day tour - A Tour of the Andes, through Trout & Wine Tours. The drive is quite windy and very scenic. The road follows the old Trans-Andean railway. When we reached Aconcagua National Park we went for a walk to a look out point with a view of the tallest mountain outside of the Himalayas. On the... More
