Aconcagua Muleasses takes rest day at High Camp

Aconcagua Team Mulasses at 19,500 feet !

Aconcagua Mulasses reaches Nido Camp and getting some snow – all in good spirits

This expedition was ‘first class’ from the advance information provided along with the quality of the pre-departure hotel gathering point, the personal attention given by the guide team, quality rented equipment, and food on the expedition. Truly a quality organization and would highly recommend to anyone.
