"Trekking in "Penitentes and Aconcagua Provincial Park"  
The Andes Mountain Range - Mendoza / Argentina  
The Aconcagua is the highest peak in the Andes, with 6,962 meters above sea level. This mountain is the principal reason for the existence of the Aconcagua Park, one of the most spectacular protected areas of Argentina. It has 71,000 hectares and is entirely in Argentina, province of Mendoza. It is not an international border.

Transfer from the hotel to the "High Mountain" zone in private vehicle. The pick up is at 07:30 a.m. After traveling 3 hs. and through the Andean road we arrive in Aconcagua Provincial Park.
We start trekking in the Aconcagua Park, walking near Horcones River Gully. From there, we will be able to watch the imposing south face of the Aconcagua, depending on the weather. After 1:30 hs. of trekking in Horcones, the expedition continue for "Quebrada de Vargas" in Penitentes, located in front of Aconcagua Park. From here it's possible to see the Aconcagua too (if there is a good weather).

The difficulty of this trekking varies depending on the members of the group. It can be gentle and slow or something more demanding. We walk 3 or 6 hs. approx (including the breaks).

In the evening we return to Penitentes and come back to Mendoza.


The activities of the trekking in high mountain depend on your physical conditions. After the guide tests the members of the group, three important things are decided: the duration of the walk, the path, and the degree of the technical difficulties the group will be able to deal with.

The trekking is the same than in any other season, the only difference is that you need snowshoes. You can rent it in Mendoza city.
