Amazing View
Dec 2019
If you can go early in the morning, you will probably enjoy much more. Less people along the park and a gorgeous view. It is a MUST visit. Even if you don't walk much, the mountain is just massive, just beautiful.

A Must Visit!
Nov 2019 • Couples
What a beautiful mountain that you can only see once you are right in front of it! It’s only 60-90 min drive from Mendoza on a easy and nice paved road, so it should be a must to visit. There is an easy walk that loops to the lookout point. The entire loop can be done in 30 min or less but more if you are stopping at every turn to take pictures. Highly recommended.

Really cool views!
Mar 2020
We don't usually get guides/drivers, but this is a long drive, and a good driver is worth it. Several sites to see on the way up, good places for an inexpensive lunch. Color on the iron oxide mountains are just beautiful! And the square rock faces on the left on the way up are interesting. Inca ruins right off the road. Hike to the lagoon t the top takes maybe 20 min but we are fast walkers. Hope for a clear day!!

Amazingly beautiful

Although there were a few too many people, walking along the paths in this park are amazing. The views are beautiful. Be prepared to walk slowly because of the Altitude. It is best to go with a guide from Mendoza since the ismgar along a challenging highly. Not to be missed.

Just for information about the price

No doubt it's a beautiful trekking path to make. Just for your information, in February 2020, for one foreigner visitor, one day, the trekking pass costs 1500 AR$.

If you really enjoy trekking, worth it. We (male, 27 and 29, no particular training) made the round-trip to Confluenzia in 4 hours and 30 minutes, including photos and lunch break. About 450m D+. Difficulty : easy to moderate.

One more piece of advice : take something to cover your mouth and nose, the place can get windy, ground is kind of dusty, and you might encounter da rude sandstorm.

Beautiful day trip to Andes while in Mendoza. Do not miss it. Hike it if you want or just stay behind to meditate upon the natural beauty. Enjoy the full complement is changes of the Andes as you drive there and back in this lovely day trip.

Aconcagua mountain - a visit to the Andes
Feb 2020
If one is visiting Mendoza for the wineries, then try to take a break with a visit to Aconcagua. You will not be disappointed. Yes, it is a long drive, but one that is scenic, beautiful vistas, and close to 3hrs to the foot of the Andes, it is well worth it.
We were in Mendoza for 3 days, the 1st day visiting the wineries, 2nd to Aconcagua, and 3rd day back to visiting the wineries.

Once you get to the park, the altitude is around 3000 meters, and one can take an approx hour long trek, just at the foothills - was breathtaking, we were not seasoned enough to to trek to the Base Camp. It is well worth a visit for the scenery.
On the return journey back to Mendoza, we stopped to visit the Hanging Bridge, we were Wowwed, simply beautiful!!!.

Only the early birds get the Aconcagua worm
Feb 2020
We arrived around 13:00 o clock following a plan made roughly nine months ago. We took a plane from Buenos Aires to Mendoza very early in the morning, then a ride directly from the airport and finally we arrived to our well planned in advance destination.
We wanted to do a full day trek to Confluencia, which is the first camp, only 3 hours away from the entrance to the park. To out total surprise the only option we had of visiting anything inside the Aconcagua Park, was a short 45 minutes walk to the Laguna and the suspended bridge. Apparently if you want to visit anything else, you have to enter the park between 8 and 11 in the morning. The only way to do this is it come directly from Mendoza and leave as early as 5 in the morning in order to make it.
Maybe the problem comes from the fact that the park closes at 6PM but that is not such a big surprise if you consider that most activity in Mendoza comes to a complete stop between 12 and 17 hours. In the summer months the sun shines until 9PM so you may wander why it would close up so early...
Anyhow, we read a few blogs before coming there and none of them mentioned this tight 8-11 AM schedule. The lady employee also had a crappy attitude saying we should of read that info on the official site but to be honest such a site is hard to find, unless you use for search those exact words: Aconcagua official site...

Great views of Aconcagua
Jan 2020
Nice easy walk (10-15 minutes) to get to a lookout for great views of the mountain. Although at close to 3000 meters you do feel the altitude. You can walk further if you have time. You buy your ticket and drive up to the parking to start the walk. Bathrooms at the entrance of the park.
