Itinerary - Exclusive programming in Aconcagua:

We recommend staying the night before in the city of Mendoza.

Day 1: Mendoza-Puente del Inca (2800 masl): Meeting in the city of Mendoza, bus terminal, airport or we pick you up for your accommodation. 7 am. Presentation of guides and equipment check. Transfer to the office of the Aconcagua Provincial Park for the application and payment of climbing permits (ask for the procedure online, several days before). Last minute purchases. Transfer to Puente del Inca. Mountain lodge. Rest, short walks, dinner, overnight.

Day 2: Puente del Inca-Confluencia (3400 masl): Start of the trek. Horcones (2900 masl), base of Aconcagua. Presentation of permits and entrance to the Aconcagua Provincial Park. First section of the trek. We pass through the Horcones lagoon where we get the first great view of the Colossus of America, with its impressive and majestic south wall. We cross the bridge over the Horcones River and continue to the Confluencia camp (3400 masl). Rest. Use of canopies-domes for meals and meetings. We will use mountain tents, from now on, to sleep. Dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Confluencia - Plaza Francia (4000 masl) - Confluence (3400 masl): We will dedicate this day to an important walk through the area with options between the Plaza Francia viewpoint (base south wall) or the slopes of Cerro Tolosa, with spectacular views of the south wall of Aconcagua and its glaciers. Return in the afternoon, rest and hydration. Dinner and overnight.

Day 4: Return to Puente del Inca along the same path used to enter the Aconcagua Provincial Park: The colossus begins to give us the reverse view and we say goodbye to this beautiful protected area of ??the Province of Mendoza. The vehicle will wait for us in the parking lot to take us back to Mendoza City, where we will arrive in the afternoon (bus terminal end point).
