Many Expedition members have questions about the differences between the major routes on Aconcagua.

This section explains the major differences between the common routes and will assist you in making a routes selection that is appropriate for your goals and skill level.

In our experience in guiding all of the above routes, the one that most commonly gets the best reviews and has the most success is the Ameghino/Upper Guanacos route. The combination of fewer people and quieter base camp appeals to many of our clients. The 3 day trek in and the positioning of the upper camps consistently allow our clients the best possible acclimatization and the highest success rate. It is for these reasons it has become our most popular offering. Please contact us with specific route questions
