It was summer, fortunately, when we visited the Aconcagua Park. The ride from Mendoza to Aconcagua is about 4 hours but it is worth visiting the place. The ride is the best part of this tour to Aconcagua where you get a glimpse of the Andes mountains, visit a ski rink and get on the ski lift to view the... More

We emailed several tour companies recommended on Trip Advisor 10 days in advance before arriving in Mendoza. To our surprise nobody replied. So we emailed them again when we arrived in Mendoza and were met with the worst possible reception from these supposedly reputable companies. Some of them said their tours to Mount Aconcagua were fully booked for the dates... More

the drive through and beside the Andes is beautiful...it's very accessible from anywhere near Mendoza, Tunuyan or near areas. The 1 km walk from the park site is easily do-able. You can have lunch in Uspallata...be sure to have a full tank of gas when driving over.

Getting to the mountain can by tricky if you're staying in Lujan de Cuyo/Vista Alba because the online information is scarce. We stayed with Mike & Celeste from airbnb and they said that after the 6am Mendoza city stop, the yellow Buttini bus comes by (be waiting at 6:15am) and stops where the bus stop is across from Atomo supermarket...

Its 170 km to get to this park at the foot of Mt Aconcagua, but worth it. A one hour hike through the stream valley above a tiny lake takes you to a footbridge a few miles from the mountain. There are wild horses drinking from the snowmelt. The barren, multicolored landscape actually deserves the overused "awesome."

Beautiful mountains. Breath taking scenery. Great for the family. Nature at its best. Bring plenty of water and food shoes. Temperatures drop at night so be prepared and being a jacket even if it's warm out.

A must do if you are in Mendoza. The hike in the park is amazing. We were lucky to see some condors. The pictures can't captures all the hues of the mountain colors

In an illness shortened trek, we visited the entrance of the Park. The mountains have fascinating geological formations with colorful and irregular waves. It is especially interesting to get past the ranger station at 2800meters and walk up the nest 200-300 meters. It is well worth the effort and the effects of altitude should be minimized if you drink at... More

A long drive from Mendoza city, but still an interesting place to visit. Be prepared for very strong winds & much cooler temperatures. Take your winter gear, you might need it. But the bathrooms are not clean & they don't keep toilet paper & soap there. Bring your own, be prepared.
