Aconcagua (6962m) is the highest mountain outside central Asia and is one of the '7 summits'. Set in the heart of the Andes on the Chile/Argentina border, the views are spectacular.
This expedition is a great chance to see Argentina and climb the highest trekking peak in the world! Aconcagua is a step up from Kilimanjaro and is a real physical challenge for the trekker and mountaineer.
Who is it for?
Aconcagua is a non-technical but very high mountain. You do not need any technical mountaineering experience for this trip, as all necessary skills can be taught 'in-country'. However, you must be very fit, resilient and have previous experience in trekking to altitudes of around 5500m. You should be prepared to trek, camp and live the expedition life at altitude for up to 3 weeks.
This is a fully supported climb. A state of the art guide will be supported by local mountain guides (depending on group size), and all trek, basecamp and high camp logistics are included.With this state of the art support and leadership from an experienced, fully qualified Dream Guide your chances of success are as high as possible.
During this expedition we will be climbing Aconcagua by the Normal Route which is a regular favourite. The entirety of the route is a mountain trek rather than a technical climb, with some challenging scree and scrambling. But while the route is technically straightforward, the altitude and possibility of sudden changes of weather still make this a challenging expedition.
This is a 20 day expedition where we follow a slow acclimatisation program, as this is key to success (and safety) on this high altitude climb. We include 2-3 potential summit days in case of bad weather. Our itinerary is tried and tested and offers an excellent chance of success
