ACONCAGUA BASE CAMP SERVICES
BASE CAMP SERVICES WHILE CLIMBING ACONCAGUA
AMG has three well-established camps run by an experienced and conscientious bilingual staff, allowing us to provide a very high level of comfort and care. It is important to have a good place to rest and eat nutritious meals before heading up the mountain. Our staff takes great pride in providing these services. Our Base Camp services are free of charge for those who order meal services.
All camps are fully equipped with dining tents containing tables, chairs, table clothes, silver wear and electric lights. All camps have secure storage tents, clean toilets and charging stations for phones and computers. Personal tent platforms are already established which saves considerable time and energy for climbing groups when they arrive.
All our base and approach camps are connected with a communication system via VHF radio frequency or satellite phone. This allows us to facilitate the smooth movement of gear and to assist those coming off the mountain whether scheduled or unscheduled in a timely manner. Should an emergency occur we are in close contact with the Rangers and the helicopter service to move climbers efficiently to additional services off the mountain.
The Provincial Park has medical facilities in both Plaza de Mulas and Plaza Argentina operated by doctors with experience in high altitude and emergency medicine. AMG has additional medical equipment which includes: portable oxygen, emergency first aid kits, and digital oximeters.
DORMITORY STRUCTURE TENTS WITH BUNK BEDS
In all of our base camps we have large tents used to provide dormitory service. They have bunk beds with mattresses and carpeted floors. This service requires advanced reservations for those climbers who would prefer to sleep in a bed during their stay.
