Aconcagua or the Stone Sentinel at 6961m is the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas and the 2nd highest 7 Summit.
We take the 360 route which is both enjoyable and less crowded. The ascent via the Vacas Valley over the summit and then descending via the Normal Route offers the best chance of success and acclimatisation.
The expedition uses a combination of established paths between the Polish Route, the Ameghino Traverse, Upper Guanaco and the Normal Route.
The 3 day trek to Plaza Argentina Base Camp is gentle and spectacular. From Basecamp we make further acclimatisation hikes before camping at the higher sites along the first part of the Polish Route. Below the immense Polish Glacier we traverse by Cerro Ameghino up to Camp 2, located in a pleasant plateau and ideal for a days rest before moving to Camp 3. From Camp3 we finally see where we rejoin the Normal route and our path to the summit.
This route will allow you many advantages including to see the unique landscape: the magnificence of the Polish Glacier and the greatness of the Andes; and most importantly, it will allow you to have a better acclimatization and thus more chances to reach the summit.
The descent by the Normal Route will take us to Plaza de Mulas, Aconcagua´s biggest Base camp. In the morning we trek towards Laguna de los Horcones and all the way to the roadhead where our transfer to Mendoza and the restaurants will allow us to celebrate in style.
