“Incredible views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Outstanding views, incredible drive through the Andes on Route 7. Makes for a very, very long day but so worth every minute. Uspallata is a lovely stop along the way. The colors in the Fall are spectacular!

“Great small hike (rent a car from Mendoza)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Perfect easy one hour hike with great views ... not only at Aconcagua (have a look behind you at the mountain range). Here´s a tip: rent a car from Mendoza and make a one day trip to Aconcagua and the Inca bridge (Puente del Inca). It is about 6 hours there and back plus some time at the sights (2-3 extra hours). Driving is easy, you basically follow one road and the natural scenery is amazing almost all the way!!!
If you have time stop for a coffee in Uspallata village, it is a beautifull place with trees set among mountains. Actually, if I had more time I would spend a night there and break the trip.

“Big”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We were there in the heat of the summer so much of the park was dry. We did not see all of it, but did walk to the lagoon which was a disappointment.

“On the roof of the Andes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

This was quite a hard hike (21 days), as compared to, say Mt Kilimanjaro, but the views were spectacular
