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

Spectacular views of Mount Aconcagua, and the drive from Mendoza had splendid views of the mountains and the dam. Didn’t stay as long or walk as much as I would have liked, but you can only do so much in one day.

Visiting Aconcagua national park is a must! Even if you only do the circuit at the entrance. You’ll have great views of the summit.

We took a day trip here from Mendoza to see some nature. Did not dissapoint in that department. Beautiful scenery and a nice walk around available. Drawback was the quite long drive (2,5-3,0 hours from Mendoza) with only scenery along the way. No concession sales...More

Not a very long hike with spectacular vistas. Acocagua and the surrounding mountains are amazing. Be prepared for windy conditions and 3000 meters elevation. It can feel cold some of the time.

Yes it's a long way, but if you like scenery then it's well worth the effort. The drive up was as interesting as Aconcagua itself. Facilities at the park are limited but access to a viewing point is a short walk.

Almost 7000 meters over sea level. Cold wind, bright sun and blue sky. Not enough oxygen, but you don't need it, you don't breath out of surprise and excitement.

This is a must while in Mendoza. We took a tour with Kahuak which was great. We almost didn't get to Aconcagua because our guides told us that perhaps the roads would be closed because of the snow, but in the end, we got to...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
