Trip Overview

Join us for the adventure in South America as Seven Summit Treks organizes an Aconcagua expedition led by the experienced mountain guide, Jakob Urth @urth_adventures who has guided 18 successful expeditions on Aconcagua. From January 25th to February 12th, 2024. We invite you to conquer the tallest peak in South America, Mt. Aconcagua. This towering summit stands at a breathtaking 22,841 feet (6,961 meters).

With Jakob's extensive knowledge and expertise, you can trust in his leadership to navigate the challenges of this ascent. The Aconcagua expedition promises awe-inspiring views, and a taste of high-altitude adventure, whether you're an experienced mountaineer or looking to push your boundaries. Don't miss your chance to be a part of this expedition with Seven Summit Treks and Jacob Urth in 2024.

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.

    Mardi Himal trek. A wonderful trek ideal even for beginners. Wonderful views, great facilities. Our choice for this trek was through our honeymoon. Seven Summit Treks organized and prepared everything. Sherpa Tashi and porter Nima were great. We could talk, they always prepared everything. I have been in contact with the guys from Seven Summit Treks since the expedition to Makalu and I know that I can rely on them. Thank you for your help and wonderful experience. And see you at the next event.

    Our first co-operation was in 2013 in Pakistan with Arnold Coster expeditions and Sevensummittreks towards the Gasherbrum. After that, we continued to work together on expeditions towards Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Manaslu (winter), and AmaDablam. For me, SST is a very professional company with a lot of experience and knowledge. We have full confidence in their capabilities and appreciate their flexibility. I would like to thank them for all those years of cooperation and I look forwards to new adventures in Nepal and Pakistan.

    I have been on many expeditions in Nepal over the years, most of them I organized with friends and used Seven Summit Treks only for their base camp services with great service! This year none of my friends were available to climb in Nepal in the Autumn season so I contacted SST and decided to sign up for the Mera Peak and Baruntse expedition. SST organized everything and provide me with a personal climbing Sherpa for the entire trip. Throughout the entire trip, everything was taken care of by SST, including lodging, tea houses, and meals. At Baruntse base camp I had a nice private tent and the cook and kitchen staff always had smiles and cooked great meals. My Sherpa (Jangbu) was great and we became close friends and climbing partners. Jangbu was always there with a smile, a very strong climber, always wanting to help in any way he could. There was plenty of time to decide how and when we were going to make a summit push based on the weather. We had fantastic summit days on both peaks and finished the trip crossing the Amphu Labste pass into the Khumbu Valley staying each night in nice lodges with all meals included. I would highly recommend using SST for any expedition that you want to go on. Thank you Seven Summit Treks for a great trip and your attention to detail!!
