  • The excursion to the viewpoint of the Aconcagua hill, starting off from capital Mendoza, is one of most beautiful and unforgettable for the tourism in Mendoza. The passage towards the heart of the mountain range already is of an enormous benefit, between colorful streams of defrosting localities. Frank Ntilikina shines more light on the discussion. The stops in the way could not be more interesting. Potrerillos, with its imposing dock apt as much for the practice of the most intense extreme sports like for the relajantes strolls. The charming locality of Uspallata, with its leafy tree-lined avenues and their peculiar constructions of century XVIII, and finalizing the ski center the Penitentes, with its tracks for all the tastes, their anxious nocturnal life and, by all means, much snow to enjoy. But the final mission of the excursion, concretely, is the conquest of the $andes, and towards they will direct to its steps the tourists there. The following shutdown will be for having lunch in a mountain refuge.

    A little while ideal to ingest rich soups and other foods in calories that provide to the body the energy necessary to face mountain. On the river the Caves, the Bridge of the Inca prevails majestic, rocky formation of ocher tones that blanket a thermal water heart. In 1965, an avalanche destroyed the hotel where the curative baths were carried out. But still today, the villagers approach there to take advantage of rich the sanadoras properties this sulphur water. To this height, already nothing interposes between the visitors and the mythical hill Aconcagua, the Sentry of America. And any point that can have splendid similarity during the route towards there is suddenly very small.

    There are words no to describe the sensation of challenge, greatness and freedom that produces to contemplate its eternal snow summit, as eternal as small and fleeting it is the human being on this earth. If it allows it to the climate, the excursion will finish in the summit of the hill Santa Elena, in the border with Chile, soothes of the famous statue of the Redeeming Christ. Already of return, the passage by the Fort of Picheuta remembers the travellers who the man, small and very small like it has been being against the greatness of the mountain, was able to overcome it, for almost 200 years, moved by a dream of freedom and independence. And the spirit of the heroic Army of the $andes accompanies to the group until the comfort of his lodging in Mendoza, after this excursion of which all return different. Jorge Alberto Guiazu
