Well worth taking the time for a day trip or catching the bus between Santiago and Chile. The Andes are magical and Aconcagua is mesmerising. Even our driver had to keep looking at it and he goes there regularly.

Beautiful, stunning view. And the silence... Not a big deal to visit and very affordable. Going by bus strongly suggested.

The park is beautiful and well worth the trekking and tent life. The stars are amazing and the Groucho cooked food increíble.

Great experience but the wind kept us from getting to the summit. Oh well, it’s not going anywhere so I’ll be back!

We hiked to the base camp. It was a bit harder than expected in parts, but still very manageable. Amazing scenery over the 5 hour hike there and back.

The 90 minute drive to the park is quite scenic in itself, and Aconcagua does not present itself until the very end. We did about a 45 minute walk before heading back - you do feel the effects of the altitude here. We had a...More

Visited while in Mendoza area. About a 2 hour drive from city centre, with a comfort stop (depending on volume of truck traffic, access is by the main highway to Chile, road has passing lanes but can still be slow). Stop in Uspallata for coffee...More

We did a loop around the park visiting the different stations, the views are amazing and the walking fairly easy. It would be beneficial to wear closed shoes as the path has loose rock on it.

You will access the park on the road from Argentina to Chile, that is the road that leaves Uspallata and eventually takes you to Santiago in Chile. Contrary to some older blogs that I have read, now you do not need to pass through Argentine...More

Of course, when you’re in the surrounding you should visit. We walked the 45min trail which was nice. However, I would argue that a bit much more info/experience could enhance the park. Its simply a small trail with some nice views, but I found there...More

I believe that you do. I had traveled from Santiago de Chile to Mendoza to meet my friends before we went to Aconcagua. From the Argentine side we did not need to cross so I believe from the Chilean side you do. Also beware... More

My wife and I are planning on taking a bus to Mendoza from Santiago Chile after getting off a cruise ship in Feburary. We are interested in basing ourselves for 4 days in the Mendoza area. Our primary interest are some wine touring on bicycles if possible, thermal springs and visiting the Andes. Is it better to stay in Mendoza City or one of the oultine suburbs like Maipu or Chacras de Coria? Also are there any good places to stay at in closer proximity to Parque Provincial Aconcagua for a...More

Info about trek to Laguna de los Horcones (6 Replies)
Hello I am about going to Parque Provincial Aconcagua. I would like to make the short trek to Laguna de los Horcones but as I am not in my best shape need to know which is the altitude to the end(it seems it starts at 3.200m) and if it last 1h or more walking at a slow pace. Anything more to know?

This is not a trek as much as a leisurely walk on a good interpretative trail, with good views of Aconcagua if there is not cloud cover (check the weather forecast for nearby Puente del Inca or Penitenetes YOURSELF before you splash out for a tour, as the weather system is completely different from the city of Mendoza). You would have to go real slow to make it more than an hour. The altititude is 2,950 metres (and it maybe has a slight altitude change of about 20 metres at the highest...More
