This adventure will take you to the highest point in the entire American continent (6.959 m./22.834feet) and also the highest peak outside Asia. The Aconcagua is located in Argentina, close to the border with Chile, the name means "The stone sentinel" in the quichua language.

The first successful ascent was recorded in1897 and accomplished by a Swiss guide name Mathias Zurbriggen.
The ascent will be through the normal route, which is technically easy, but no less strenuous and physically demanding especially because of the high altitude and low temperature. To ensure success, physical preparation, basic experiences in mountaineering and good judgement are essential. Be sure to program practice ascents prior to the expedition.

The 11day itinerary is designed for very fit hikers, who have gone through previous acclimatization on Cerro el Plomo, within the last five days.
