Hi!, you are enjoying a 360º virtual interactive tour on Aconcagua mountain, highest peak in the world (6,962m) outside Asia. This is a work in progress, by the moment you can visit the most representative points of the Normal Route ascent, from the entrance of the State Park up to the summit. We hope to cover Vacas Valley's route very soon. Notice that you can click and hold your left mouse's button to interact with the seen, and by clicking on the hotspots you can walk to the next camps (be patient if the new scenes takes some seconds to appear, depending on internet connection).
Aconcagua mountain is entirely located in the province of Mendoza, Argentina.
You also may be interested in the book "Aconcagua photographs", the first and only one in its type.This book is the result of many seasons' fieldwork at Mt. Aconcagua, consisting of more than 100 photographs that document the sheer power, beauty and life of the highest peak in the world outside of the Himalayas.
The pictures also capture the curious dynamic present in many big mountains: on the one hand, the distinct atmosphere of wild, open spaces with its larger-than-human scale; on the other, crowded base camps turned tent cities that look as cosmopolitan as a European capital,
with trade and administration of their own. The images in "Aconcagua Photographs" form a documentary about mountaineering in Aconcagua. They have the air of an adventure story, of someone who shoulders a backpack and departs on a new expedition that feels the landscapes and colors of the high places, discovers the wildlife
of the valleys and meets new friends. This book was created out of this spirit.
11" x 9" landscape, 152 pages, premium quality printing, hard case & dust jacket.
