Aconcagua – 6972m

Dates of expeditions in 09.12.16 – 06.01.17 – 02.02.17  (duration 13 to 17 days).

Cerro Aconcagua is the highest Peak 6972m of the Americas and it awakens a huge interest in many hikers and climbers because it has a great mountain and a great adventure. But reach the Summit of this mountain is not so easy, since it requires a good acclimatization in defiance of the altitude, the climate, the low atmospheric pressure, cold, snow, thin air, logistics, navigation and especially challenging himself. But all that is possible to overcome if you’re with a team prepared to overcome each of these challenges together and then have a good story to tell.
