Near Mendoza, the Aconcagua is the tallest summit out of Asia at 22,835. This classic hiking climb can be made without expert mountaineering skills, but unpredictable weather makes summiting uncertain. Summiting requires a multi-week expedition, with patience to wait out storms and endurance for a 14 hour climb on summit day.

Overall, Mount Aconcagua is the 2nd most popular hiking trail of all 2 hikes in Argentina.
