Our Expert Guides will take you on an exciting journey through Penitentes Hill, exploring its surroundings and admiring its imposing beauty.
The circuit starts with a climb to Paso Serrata, at a height of 4,000 meters, on Penitentes HIll. This ascent is not technical, and from the summit you will have the best view of the famous Aconcagua and Tupungato Volcanoes; Tupungato being the highest volcano in America.
From this point we will descend into Tupungato Valley and the surrounding valleys, to achieve a stunning view of the fourth highest volcano in the world. In a wild environment, enveloped by basins that preserve the local flora and fauna, we'll take a nice walk through a quiet and solitary atmosphere; with the probability of finding other tourists being very low. From here, we will observe condors, guanacos, foxes, birds, and on some occasions, even pumas.
Join us on a tour immersed in the nature and calmness of a valley that promises an unforgettable experience.
