7 Summits

Cerro Aconcagua

Normal Route

28. December 2020

Aconcagua is one of the most challenging expeditions among the Seven Summits. There is the unpredictable weather, the long duration and the high altitude. Our approach allows a smooth acclimatisation to adapt to the hight gain especially on the summit day. To increase the summit success we have planned 3 reserve days in case of bad weather. All this increases the success rate of our expedition. During the first days when hiking to Base Camp, you will be carrying only your daypack. The rest of your gear will be transported by mules to the Camp, in which you spend the night. Starting from Base Camp, you will be carrying your gear in two rotations. If you need porters help, we can organise it for you.
