Trekking & Barbecue In The Andes From Mendoza City

1. Trekking & Barbecue In The Andes From Mendoza City

Start with a two-hour drive to the beginning of the trek in the Andes front range called "Cordon del Plata". On the way, you will be able to see the Cacheuta Village and Potrerillos dam. Part of the Front Range, the "Cordon del Plata", has a maximum altitude of 5968m, a length of 80 kilometers and it is home to an incredible variety of landscapes. The trek is along one of its ravines called "La Angostura", with an approximate duration of 3 and a half hours during which you will be able to enjoy the views of Potrerillos dam, the pre-mountain range area and of some of the highest peaks in the Range. If you are lucky, you will be able to spot some "condors" and "guanacos" since it is their natural habitat. When finishing the hike, you will be welcomed by a typical Argentinean "asado" and wine from the region.

2. Mt. Aconcagua Confluencia Camp Trekking

This is a one-day activity and almost a 20km round trip hike. You will trek until Confluencia, the first Aconcagua base camp, where you will be able to enjoy an Argentinean 'picada' consisting of salami, cheese, and homemade bread. If the weather is nice, you will be able to see the Aconcagua and its majestic southern wall.

Andes Hiking experience in small groups. From Mendoza

3. Andes Hiking experience in small groups. From Mendoza

What does the trip consist of? You will live a day as a mountaineer. We will start early to make the most of the day, and we will travel for 2 hours, enjoying the landscape that takes us to the foothills of Cordón del Plata. Once there, around 10:45 a.m., we will start our high altitude hike, depending on the trail we have chosen. The diversity of the place offers many possibilities! And since we work with small groups and provide a personalized service, we define the itinerary together with each group. Some of the options we suggest for the tour are: - High altitude camps: this tour is ideal for those who want to take it easy or go with the family, as we will walk through ravines without steep slopes, to get to know those key places where climbers camp in their great expeditions. The panoramic views are not to be missed. - La cadenita: If you are looking for something more demanding, this is a great option. It is a trail through three chained hills, at a continuous pace that requires training and implies a greater challenge. And as in all our trips, a good meal is a must. Whether as a reward for the effort, or motivation to continue, the moment in which we enjoy tasty meals completes the experience. Once the hike is finished, which will last approximately 4 to 5 hours, we will return to Mendoza City with the tiredness and satisfaction of having hiked a day among the great mountains of the Andes. ¿Who do we recommend the Andes Hiking Tour for? The Andes Hiking Tour in Mendoza is recommended for those who are looking an approach to the Andes to experience high altitude hiking, without going too far away from Mendoza city, and without the need of camping. It is ideal for all kinds of objectives: whether you are looking for a day hike with the family or a more intense plan of physical demand; this place offers a suitable tour for you.

This was a fantastic day trip. Vanina and Joaquín run their own company and are trained mountain guides. Safety comes first with them, even for inexperienced people, this tour is highly recommended. Vanina planned ahead, managed to adapt the tour to our needs perfectly, in adition to being an extremely knowledgeable guide and a fun person. You cannot go wrong with them, worth every cent.
