About
We will head southwest on Provincial Route 86, enjoying the landscapes of Cacheuta until we cross the tunnel that connects this town with Potrerillos. We will contemplate the wonderful view of the Cordón del Plata, Mendoza’s main source of water and, of the picturesque Potrerillos Dam, a mirror of crystalline water in the middle of mountains. We will continue along this path, contemplating the unforgettable landscape, going through tunnels and bridges, until we reach the town of Uspallata. Again we will make a strategic stop to get a better view of the Valley as a whole. Already back in the van, we will move a few kilometers, until we reach “Puente del Inca”. Mandatory stop icon of our mountain range. Once we return to the route, the Aconcagua Provincial Park awaits us. There we will obtain the corresponding permits to make a walk of approximately one hour, to the viewpoint of the Laguna de Horcones, where we can see the South Wall and the summit of the highest hill in America.

Informative & Fun!
Feb 2020
This was a well-curated and jam-packed trip. The driver and guide were fantastic - extremely responsive, informative and patient. The bus was extremely comfortable, with lots of snacks and stops.

There was lots of context given with regards to geology, geography, and history of the region. However, what was more important is that we were shown beautiful and grand landscapes that spoke for themselves.

The only negative was that we got back to town a couple of hours later than scheduled. There were some people who needed more time on the hike and it was still a great time with lots of stops packed in. However, I would just be mindful of the possible return variance if planning dinner or other things in the evening,

great day, with an excellent tour guide
Feb 2020
All day tour to Aconcagua from Mendoza. Our tour guide, Federico and driver, Maxi were both great. Federico is very knowledgable and was very friendly and a pleasure to be with. In addition to the hike in Aconcagua Park, we saw the Inca Bridge, the San Martin cannon bridge, a stop in Uspallata, and a nice lunch. Although it is was a long day, it was well worth it and a fantastic way to see the area.

Amazing tour, amazing service
Kahuak was an amazing choice for the Aconcagua and Altas Montanhas tour. The guide (Ivan) was kind and ready to support giving on time information about the places and attention points in English and Spanish. The driver (Facundo) made the tour smooth even in hard roads with no pavement through the Cordillera. I strongly recommend Kahuak for adventure tours around Mendoza.
