Cerro el Plomo is an ideal pre-acclimatisation climb for Aconcagua. Aconcagua, “The Sentinel of Stone”, is the highest peak outside of the Himalaya. Located in Western Argentina - the heart of the Central Andes, it is South America’s highest peak and one of the much sought after "Seven Summits".
An ascent of this eminent Andean Peak is ideal for those wishing to experience high altitude expedition mountaineering and is often undertaken as a preparation climb for the big mountains in the Himalaya.
The expedition begins and culminates in the Chilean capital city of Santiago, the fifth largest city in South America. Spend some time exploring the cultural sights, historic buildings and local markets on a Santiago City Tour.
