What a wonderful journey from Mendoza to see Mt Aconcagua. One of the highlights of our trip to South America to travel up the glacier value to have a site on Aconcagua. We hike 3/4ths of a mile to get a better view. Was worth it. Wish we had more time and we would have done the 2 to 2.5... More

Definitely worth a visit, but only if you can deal with walking a few km. bring sun cream for your face and lips. My lips burnt without my knowledge. A few warm layers required in case of wind or change in weather, but otherwise, weather still nice in Autumn (April). You can often see Condors flying over head or even... More

While staying in Mendoza (see El Encuentro de Chacras) frequent visits to wineries prohibited our renting a car. The owners of our posada (above) recommended Cristobal Ortiz Maldonado, who drove 4 of us around in his new and clean car. He is fluent in English and a very competent and knowledgable driver. He lives in Mendoza with his wife and... More

Although it is the tallest mountain around, unless you can spend the time to hike in to it, it isn't the gem of the trip. The real treasure is enjoying the trip up there. Bring a warm jacket! The wind is fierce and cold. Park fee at the time was 20 pesos per person. We rented a car in mendoza,... More

I am so glad that I took the excursion with Cubas De Roble. I saw the most beautiful mountain in Mendoza. We actually got to see the place called Cerro Aconcagua and it is so beautiful with snow on the very top of the mountain. We also got to see the monument of Cristo the Redentor as well! I am... More

Very well organized park, clean and very helpful rangers and staff (especially those from Inka Expediciones), both at Confluencia and Plaza de Mulas. Very nice place for trekking. And if well trained and with enough mountaineering experience and previous climbs at altitude (at least at 3500-4000m) you can attempt the summit of Aconcagua. I did not have enough time so... More

We went on a day-trip from Santiago to Parque Provincial Aconcagua and it was well worth the long 13 hour day. We had clear skies in the beginning and then some clouds rolled in later in the afternoon. The views from the trail are breathtaking and we hiked as far as the bridge that crosses Rio Harcones. I forgot my... More

Not for the faint hearted or a quick trip. We spent 2.5 weeks climbing this mountain. Views from it are amazing and the walk into base camp gives you a great sense of the Andes in all their glory. Not a minor undertaking but well worth it.

Stunning and gorgeous. The mountain is absolutely stunning and the valleys surrounding the area are absolutely breathtaking.

The heart of the Andes. Aconcagua is a monster of a mountain, the highest on 6 continents. I spent 2 1/2 weeks trying to summit and unfortunately was turned back by weather 500m from the top. Good hiking around the base of it, but the focus is on the quest for the summit.
