Fully qualified, professional, local and bilingual mountain guides who have summited many times, with a ratio of one guide to every 3 to 4 clients.
Plenty of acclimatisation built in to give you the best chance to summit.
Two buffer days in case of poor weather on summit day.
Climb to the top of South America's highest peak, a fantastic achievement and great challenge.
Great food, equipment and briefings - ideal preparation for your summit push.
Hire extra porters to help lighten your loads.
The guides were quite simply outstanding. They really made the trip a wonderful experience. I felt they were absolutely part of the team and there was no ‘client/guide’ barrier whatsoever.
Professional and diligent throughout, and always good humoured and practical.
