Andes trekking Vallecitos. Mountaineering in Mendoza
We’ll leave the hotel after breakfast. On this tour, we’ll find one of the few alpine landscapes of the country. Huge mountains of 3000 and 6000 meters high are perfect to offer us a day of adventure rounded by a beautiful environment.
The characteristics of this area make it a great place for acclimatization. Normally, some Andinists visit this area before climbing the Aconcagua Mount or going into other higher difficulty Andes Trekkings. Vallecitos is a mid-point between the long distances and desert softness you can observe in Patagonian for instance.
The Silver Cord belongs to the Central Andes Range. Actually, it is located between Frontal and Pre Range. So, when you do this trek, you’ll get the views of every mountains nearby. Geologically, it is the the youngest formation near Aconcagua, so its mountains are the most slender of the area.
The proposal for this day is trekking to the top of these two hills. Arenales (3400 meters) and Lomas Blancas (3600 meters). Not only you will enjoy a full day trek, but also you’ll get to see the wild fauna and native flora of the Central Andes.
