You can do short hike (1 hr) to the Laguna de Horcones and have a beautiful view of the Aconcagua, if the weather is as good as it was on our visit. You can also hike a bit further to a hanging bridge which is another 1 hr. The entrance fee is AR$20. (to be paid in cash)

We rented a car and drove to the look out point in Parque Provincial Aconcagua. The whole drive was worth it - it took us around 8 hours round trip but we did a lot of stopping and looking at all the sites. I would recommend a stop at Potrerillos lake and Puente Del Inca for some great photo ops.... More

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.
