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

The almost 200km scenic drive up there was well worth it. Very nice view of the Aconcagua. At an elevation of about 9000ft, go well prepared and covered. Strong winds all day long..!

It was an amazing experience! Gorgeous place for a hiking in contact of the nature! The hiking trail is easy to walk on but not too crowded.

This place is very special. The landscape is outstanding and the of Cerro Aconcagua is inspiring and breathtaking. But to have a full view of Aconcagua mountain you should hike about 1.5 km to reach the Mirador of Aconcagua, worth the effort. A must visit!

It's an easy hike, but a long ride! Not much else to do out there that would be entertaining for a toddler.

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)

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
