On this long and demanding journey, we ride among imposing mountains, such as Mount Aconcagua (6,959 m), discovering glaciers, valleys, rivers and eternal snows at every turn.
The first part of this journey takes place on the Argentine side. We leave from Las Hornillas, in the province of San Juan, and ride up to the top of the Andes – the Chilean border.
Since our Peruvian horses, pack mules, saddles and supplies cannot cross the border between both countries, we must leave them on the Argentine side.
However, right there at the top, we change horses and have all the necessary things to continue with our trip.
Once in Chile, we start the descent towards Los Patos, about 100 km before Santiago de Chile.
From there, we travel by car to the capital city, where we enjoy a delicious farewell dinner. This is the perfect time to look back on the anecdotes of the journey!
The following day, guests go back to their home countries with this experience still fresh in their minds.
