Today we trekked the remaining distance leaving at 8:45 AM and arriving at Base Camp at 2:20 PM. We traversed the deep part of the river on mules and started climbing up rocky ridges and terrain ascending all the way to Plaza Argentina Base Camp at 4100 m (13,500 ft).
Along the way, we took a nice relaxed lunch and enjoyed sandwiches but in the last couple of hours we faced really strong headwinds.
As the wing was blowing hard at Plaza Argentina, we chose some good spots for our tents and spent the afternoon exploring Base Camp and relaxing.
We were treated to a delicious dinner of soup, lasagna and for dessert we had Crepes loaded with Dulce de Leche. We went to bed pretty late as tomorrow is a rest day and we don’t have to wake up until 8 or 9 AM.Next Post: Aconcagua Day 4: Rest Day at Plaza Argentina Base Camp Previous Post: Aconcagua Day 2: Casa de Piedra
