1. What`s the difference between Ameghino Upper Guanacos & Polish and Traverse Route?
The Ameghino Upper Guanacos and the Polish Traverse use the same trekking route, the Vacas and Relinchos valley until Plaza Argentina base camp. The only section where they came apart is after camp 1! The Ameghino traverse through the Ameghino col to the old Guanacos route reaching the chooper camp or camp ! The Polish Traverse continue to the base of the glacier where we set camp 2, near the glacier where the wind with the help of the glacier blows stromg and cold.....this camp is also more expose and the hike to Piedras Blancas more demanding than from camp 2 of the Ameghino Upper Guanacos.
2. Which route should I choose?
The Ameghino because: more progressive, less crowdie, beautiful, full circuit, best high camp, most successful, etc...
