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.

Services – Mt. Plata Expedition
We believe that to succeed in our expeditions, professionals with experience and the ability to offer security should guide our teams. All our guides speak English.
The expeditions are led by a mountain guide to every 3 / 4 clients. Their equipment includes: VHF radio, a first aid kit, complete with the appropriate drugs for altitude sickness, ropes, an altimeter, and professional clothing and equipment. All this will provide security and comfort.
Usually, two climbers will sleep in each tent, but if our guide considers it necessary, a maximum of three climbers may sleep in one tent. Remember that you will have to set up your own tent with your partner. The guide will help you when necessary.
NOT INCLUDED SERVICES
If you rent equipment, you will be responsible for it. Apart from that, you must give the equipment back to the mountain shop on time.
In the same way, if your luggage does not arrive to Mendoza on time for the departure date of the expedition group, the expedition will be carried out as initially planned, and you will be responsible for those extra expenses caused by this shortcoming.
