Climbing Aconcagua (6962m) Via Valle De Vacas and across to Plaza De Mules

tab general


Aconcagua is still officially the highest mountain in the Americas despite dispute over Ojos Del Salado in Chile. Being one of seven highest peaks of each continent and technically an easy climb, it gives climbers (including those lacking experience) an opportunity reach a summit of almost 7000 metres. Aconcagua also is the highest peak in the Western and southern hemispheres, as well as the highest outside of Asia.
