We visited on our honeymoon when we spontaneously decided to hike up to Plaza Confluencia. Absolutely marvelous - but not just for expert. My wife and I hardly ever hike, and if we hike it's never at altitude, but we had a great day making the hike up. Tips: - Take your time to hike up to Plaza Confluencia in... More

By driving from Mendoza it's an easy way to enjoy the scenic route and the sight of Aconcagua in front of our eyes.

You may have heard that Aconcagua is a "walkup," but it isn't. It requires physical fitness, altitude adaptability, and weather conditions to obtain a successful summit. Saludos to all of those who are willing to take the challenge and thanks to the rangers, guides, porters, cooks, mule services, and last but not the least the policía who were stationed at... More

I went with a tour with a guide. This was the highlight of my trip today. No matter the weather and how hot it is take a coat, I wore leggings under shorts and a coat... It was perfect. I understand it is 6,000 meters above sea level, so the air is also a little thin. You are able to... More

I thought my trips to the Alps or Rockies were spectacular but this area of the Andes is not only breathtaking but absolutely phenomenal in terms of scale. Drive up or take a bus (really easy and cheap) and trek all day or part of it. The vistas are not to be topped.

We live in Pucón, Chile on the flanks of the Villarrica Volcano (Rukapillán), which is a little over 9000 feet high (2847 m). Hiking to the top and down takes most of a day and is very taxing.... crampons, ice axe, helmet, etc.) To reach the same altitude at Aconcagua takes you just get out of your car in the... More

I travelled with a small group of five people, an excellent tour guide and a friendly driver. It was a round trip of 10 hours from Mendoza, including a breakfast stop and a lovely lunch in the afternoon. Hiking in the park was an amazing experience on that clear and sunny day, the views were absolutely breathtaking. But best to... More

This was an incredible hike! Our best outdoor adventure in Argentina. We drove a rental car out on a very scenic drive past km and km of vineyards, and then into impressive mountain vistas. Beware - you need 300 pesos each person to do a "day trek" to the base camp, and they don't accept cards or dollars. The hike... More

The main peak is the highest in the Americas and second only to Everest. The peak is shrouded in snow and you can see at least one hanging glacier with the naked eye. The difference in the colors on the surrounding peaks makes for fantastic photographs. Highly recommended and easily accessible on a day trip out of Mendoza

One marvelous scenario. You feel like in a movie scene. It's a long drive, so you better rent a tour and avoid the drive by yourself. Mendoza tours is a good option
