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.

The highest mountain outside of Asia is right between Chile and Argentina and it's sometimes forgotten by South Americans. This is an impressive park for hiking even for the ones willing to do the single day trek to Confluencia. The way up can be a little exhausting specially for those not used to higher altitudes, so it can take a... More

We booked a day tour – High Mountain Tour, through Mendoza Holidays. Beautiful views, climate, clean air. Light treks for all fitness levels. Hiking up the Aconcagua surrounded by the majesty of the Andes has definitely been a once in a lifetime experience! .

We went on a day-trip from Mendoza to Parque Provincial Aconcagua and it was well worth the long 10 hour day. The views from the trail are breathtaking. Aconcagua is a monster of a mountain, the highest on 6 continents.

This place is breath taking - the hike to the look out point is fairly easy - when you get there you are taken aback by the majesty of the view - it is, after all the second highest peak in the world...

One of the things we wanted to do while in Mendoza was visit the Andes mountain area especially Aconcagua National Park. The company we chose after much research was Trout and Wine company. It was everything we wanted it to be. Firstly we were so fortunate we got a clear sunny day so the mountains looked glorious. We had read... More

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
