Aconcagua Tour operator


Can anyone advice me about a Aconcagua tour company called "Aconcagua Adventures".

Spoke with their rep. They sound good and professional but couldn't find any review about them over the internet.

Has anyone climbed with them or know of someone who may have climbed with them.

I'm 100% done for attempting Aconcagua during the low season and need to decide which tour operator to go with.

Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

I'm looking forward to doing Aconcagua this year via the normal route. The problem is that the only time I have on me is from Late March up to mid April.

I can't find any company so far that offers tours during this period.

Does anyone know a company that may offer a tour during this period.

Even if they do, is it recommended. How many people can I expect to find on ...

How reliable are porters/etc in Peru (Huaraz) ?

In reality, how easy or difficult is it for foreigners to organize all logistics locally after arriving in Huaraz? Any comparison to reliability / quality / cost compared to a guide agency? Obviously, guiding agencies say they are way more reliable, but that's a biased opinion:)

How reliable were the porters/cooks/etc that you've hired yourselves? Presumably you also had to rent gear for them.

This would be for heading to a popular camp like ishinca ...

Anyone doing trekking in february Peru?

Hello, we are two people going to Peru in next month and were thinking about using an agency to a guided trek in Huarez (cordilla Blanca region), but would like to join up with somebody - well bascially to save costs.

Also, could anyone recommend some treks for beginners, or anything similiar, and a guide agency?.

All the best

Moderate snow/ice/mixed in Peru?

Suggestions for easy/moderate mixed climbs in Peru? Heading down there for climbing sometime between May and July, total time ~10 days. Other potential climbing targets include Tocllaraju NW ridge, but that is all snow/ice.

We're looking for a climb that is similar in difficulty and risk to the NW ridge (low risk is important), but includes some rock as well. Difficulty ideally about the same as Contamine-Griselle on Mont Blanc du Tacul...so, pretty straightforward and ...

Partner desired for Cordillera Blanca, until Sept. 18th

Greetings, I'm in Huaraz now. My friend & climbing partner had the great misfortune of breaking his ankle on a climb. Fortunately, he made it down the mountain all right (& up, too!!!!). I leave Peru (from Lima, so I need to take a bus from Huaraz) on the 20th. Until then, I'd love to get up another mountain or 2 (the reason I came down here).

I have experience at altitude (I've climbed all ...

Are guides required for Cayambe and Chimborazo?

I've been reading online and haven't been able to find a straight answer about this.

My 2 friends and I are planning a mountain climbing trip to Ecuador in February 2016. We're thinking of climbing either Cayambe or Chimborazo (since Cotopaxi erupted recently). We're confident in our ability to climb such mountains safely and therefore would prefer to climb without a guide.

Is it at all possible to climb Cayambe or Chimborazo without hiring a ...
