MERCEDARIO, 6720m

THE EIGHTH HIGHEST MOUNTAIN IN SOUTH AMERICA

A WILD AND LESS SATURATED PEAK THAT HAPPENS IT

Located in the province of San Juan, in the Ramada mountain range, this mountain climbed for the first time with mountaineering objectives by a Polish expedition in 1934, is the 8th highest mountain in the Andes mountain range.

It has a climate and geological conformation similar to Aconcagua, so in addition to being a great challenge, it is an excellent training before climbing the highest peak in America. But we must not lose respect for it and consider it a peak of acclimatization. The ascent to the Mercedario is an expedition!

The Mercedario is a mountain with an unusual history: it was climbed by the Incas more than 500 years ago to make sacrifices and offerings. On the way to the mountain there is a small Inca-era ruin at 5200m and even some traces of walls at 6400m.

Come enjoy what an expedition to a 6000 meters means!
