Plaza de Mulas – Horcones – Mendoza (6-7 hs hike + 3 hs transfer).
After a last breakfast with the leading guide and the climbers that will go on with the full expedition, we retrace our steps down the Horcones valley. Our vehicle will be waiting at the trailhead (with cold sodas or even a beer) to drive you back to Mendoza, where our program ends.
End your trip in style by flying out of base camp in a private helicopter instead of walking. Seeing the Andes from the Condor’s point of view is a whole different experience! Early in the morning, our BC Manager will coordinate the helicopter flight (weather permitting). After enjoying one of the world’s most scenic transfers, the helicopter will land in Horcones. A more humble land vehicle (at least it will have cold soda or beer) will drive you to Mendoza, where our program ends.
Note(*): Please note that the program begins around 9 AM, in order to have enough time to check your gear and obtain the trekking permit before noon. Please schedule your arrival accordingly (we strongly recommend being in Mendoza the day before).
