About
Being part of Plaza Francia Trekking is the opportunity to be one of the few people that have such a privilege of witnessing such a spectacle: the mythical south face of Aconcagua, an imposing wall of 9800 ft. high, where huge glaciers and rocks will leave breathless even the most experienced climber. This 3 days trekking, with medium difficulty, will let us get closer than ever before to the highest mountain in the world outside de Himalayas mountain range. We will hike through Aconcagua’s trails and sleep two nights in Confluencia Base Camp, route of many of the expeditions who seek to conquer the summit so you can share the base camp experience with mountaineers from all over the world. We will also make our way to Plaza Francia, and get the best view of the huge South Face.
