Equipment Transport: Our expedition includes transport of all of your equipment from Mendoza to our destination, and returned to Mendoza. While trekking to basecamp, we DO NOT ask our full-service members to carry heavy group equipment (although it is an option if you really want to), such as tents, rope, fuel, food, etcetera. We have mules to carry personal and group equipment to basecamp. Above basecamp, we may ask you to carry a portion of the group equipment, depending opn your strength and body weight.
Here is our mule driver, Rafael Sosa, on the trail to basecamp. These people are colorful characters, and do a good job of delivering our equipment and supplies to basecamp. Aconcagua is visible in the background (Daniel Mazur).
Cooks and Food:Meals along the trek are prepared as a group and once we reach basecamp, fresh, tasty food and hot drinks are prepared as a group in a full kitchen and dining tent. The leaders help make sure members cook and fill water bottles above basecamp. For more about where we stay and what we shall eat, please click here .
