Overview – Mt. Plata Expedition

 

The Plata summit and its relatively easy access make it the perfect mountain for starting mountaineering at high altitude.

 

It is at 6,000 m above the sea level and of course it will open the door to the mountain world.

 

It can be considered as a great stepping stone for the climbing of higher mountains as Aconcagua.

 

Surely its summit opens the door to the world of big mountains.
