Mount Aconcagua is the tallest mountain that lies outside Asia. This mountain elevates at 696m (22838 ft.) from the sea level. Mount Aconcagua lies in Argentina near the border of Chile. It is located in the Andes Mountain range. It is one of the seven summits. Our technical guide will help you through the trip assuring that there will be not deviation from the routes and other technical parts.
Aconcagua experiences extreme weather conditions, with temperatures that can drop well below freezing. Strong winds and rapidly changing weather patterns are common, and the mountain is typically covered in snow and ice. Despite being non-technical, Aconcagua presents physical and mental challenges due to its high altitude. Acute mountain sickness (AMS) is a common concern, and climbers must carefully acclimatize to reduce the risk of AMS and other altitude-related issues.
Aconcagua attracts adventurers and mountaineers from all over the world who seek to test their skills and endurance on one of the highest peaks outside of Asia. It offers a unique and challenging experience for those looking to explore the beauty and extremes of high-altitude mountaineering in South America.
