ACONCAGUA

MENDOZA, ARGENTINA

Route 360

The “Roof of America” with its 6962 meters above sea level is the highest mountain outside the Himalayas. A mountain that awakens passions and invites you to make dreams come true.

We propose a complete itinerary. We start with several nights in Las Cuevas, looking for our body to accommodate to the altitude comfortably, from the shelter located in this beautiful high mountain village at 3300 meters above sea level.

The proposed route is 360, entering through the Vacas Valley and leaving through the Horcones Valley, with the possibility of getting to know every corner of the Aconcagua Park.

Our days in the high altitude camps are thought from the theory of the “Serrucho” as a way of acclimatization, that is to say, during the day we go to the altitude and sleep lower down, this will greatly improve your acclimatization increasing our chances of summiting.

We invite you to be part of this adventure and enter into a mountaineering level enjoying the Andes in its maximum expression.
