Description

Start with a two-hour drive to the beginning of the trek in the Andes front range called 'Cordon del Plata'. On the way, you will be able to see the Cacheuta Village and Potrerillos dam. You will experience a full day regional tour. The activity will begin in the Front Mountain Range -at 2,400 meters above sea level- with a low-difficulty 3-hour hike. During the tour we will get to know the typical way of life of the locals, with their livestock and their pace of life, so different from that of the city. We will also see local wildlife: condors, guanacos and foxes. And as we reach higher altitudes, we will be amazed by the great views of Potrerillos, its dam and the pre-mountain range. Anything else? Of course, here is the best part: upon finishing the hike, we will arrive at the authentic mountain hut of Daniel, our gaucho friend. There we will be welcomed for a delicious asado criollo, with the best Argentinean meat. Although if you would rather not eat meat, all you have to do is say so, and we will prepare a vegetarian menu for you which –we are not lying– is so tasty that we always have to plan some extra servings… because there is no one who won’t have it! And the must-try: we will serve our asado with pure-bred Mendoza wine. Hiking and barbecue Mendoza is recommended to everyone. As it is a low-intensity hike, it does not exclude anyone: families and/or people with no previous experience can join us, and they will undoubtedly enjoy the whole experience.
