Our Expert Guide will take you on an adventure-filled 3-day trek, summiting the imposing Champaqui Peak while enjoying a fun physical challenge in the wild landscapes of Córdoba. Champaquí Peak is the tallest mountain in the entire province of Córdoba, standing an astonishing 2,886 meters above sea level, making it an important landmark and meeting place for hikers.
Our journey will begin as we head into the Sierras de Córdoba Mountain Range, traversing winding roads and making our way further from civilization. In less that 2 hours, we'll arrive in the heart of the sierras, the Pampa de Achala Provincial Water Reserve, where the true adventure begins. Each day we'll enjoy a different experience, beginning as we delve into the mountain's foothills and reaching Champaquí's base on the first day.
On the second day, we will embark on the most challenging portion of the trek and reach the summit. As we near the top, we'll come across a picturesque lake which is usually frozen in winter months, reflecting its captivating location and marking the final stretch. As you come over the final incline, your hard effort will be rewarded with excellent panoramic views, serving as the ultimate gratification, in combination with the priceless memories gained during the excursion. We will spend some time on the summit, allowing you to take it all in and really enjoy your surroundings. From this vantage point, valleys are small, villages seem to be tucked even more into the mountainsides, and the clouds envelop you, creating a dreamlike atmosphere.
The third and final day will be spent heading back to our starting point and reflecting on on the fantastic experiences of the past couple days.
Join us and authentically discover Champaquí Peak, immersing yourself in mountainous landscapes and connecting with nature while undertaking the challenge of reaching the summit.
