Mt Aconcagua – Base Camp

Today the team trekked for about 8 hrs to Plaza de Mulas (Base Camp 4200m). During the season, the foot of the mountain is transformed into a little village with hundreds of colourful tents and because it’s easily accessible for transport mules, there are heaps of unexpected luxuries brought in. There’s even an art shop.

Tomorrow […]

Mt Kilimanjaro – Baranco camp

Message from Sean – ‘Yesterday was a great day.  Perfect trek through the rain forest and everyone is in good shape’.

Today’s trek involves walking along narrow valley ridges and over rocky sections towards the Moorland zone.  The walk becomes steeper and very scenic.  Dinner and overnight at Baranco camp (3950m).
