Full description
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.

The experience was great. The path is very beautiful and the activity puts us in direct contact with nature. We walked all the time to the sound of the Mendoza River and we could feel the peace of being in the mountains. The agency's project is relatively new and is also a way of benefiting the local people, promoting social and economic inclusion for those who live there. In this sense, the support point is located in a very simple house, which is also an old disabled train station, where a family lives. The owners of the house themselves prepared our meal, with salads and a wonderful barbecue. Joaquín, our guide, is an enthusiast of this project and little by little he is structuring the customer reception base, together with the benefited family. The site has received improvements, such as painting and furniture to better serve tourists. It was a pleasant surprise to meet this project, which will make everyone grow together. I highly recommend it.

A peaceful hiking day with a guide, who respects customer and nature.

It is promising to meet a local mountain guide, who is respecting nature and willing to develop his skills and services. With some more experience and small investments to asado facilities and equipment, the upgrade to five stars is evident. Hike like we had would take you in the middle of wildlife, inspiring nature and you will return back from the mountains full of energy.

Fizemos um tour até o parque do Aconcágua, com um tempo para uma caminhada no parque e finalizando com um assado em um restaurante típico, local. Desde o primeiro contato com o Joaquim, tive uma excelente impressão, muito atencioso, educado e explicando todos os detalhes. No dia do passeio nos acompanhou o guia Lorenzo, que foi maravilhoso, muito educado e que compartilhou muitas informações sobre história, geografia e cultura em todo o trajeto. Recomendo fortemente deste passeio :)
