On one side Calamuchita Valley, the other, the Traslasierras. An invitation to the great adventure for trekking lovers.

Itinerary (trekking):

What we present here is the planned route for the crossing, but the exact route, the duration of each stage of travel and choice of alternative routes are subject to various factors such as weather conditions and group assessment by the guides.

Day 1: Meeting in Villa General Belgrano, from there we`ll go to Villa Alpina a small mountain village, located about 1,300 masl. Here we`ll prepare and arrange the bags and start the trekking gradually, bound for the area shelters, located at 2200 masl

The trail, gets deep into the Sierras Grandes and this stretch lasts approximately 6 hours to reach the camp area and shelters, along the Rio Tabaquillo. We`ll rest, have some snack and later assembly of camp. Dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Early breakfast. We have a day of ascent to summit, toward the roof of the province of Córdoba. A steep climb with great views.If time and conditions permit us, we will arrive to summit around noon. Time to lunch and enjoy the great moment. Later we began the descent back to the camp. Relax.

Where do you sleep





Is this trekking for beginners?

Yes. Although you should know that you have to carry your own backpack with your equipment.

How much do we walk per day?

We walk approximately 6 to 8 hours a day. The second day we go lightly to the summit and then we descend to the camp.

How do I travel?

The meeting is at the Villa General Belgrano bus terminal. If it is from Buenos Aires, the best way is to have the bus service that leaves from Retiro. From VGB we include a transfer to Villa Alpina, the beginning of the walking tour.

Where do we sleep?

In a mountain refuge, rooms to share, with bunk beds. You have to bring a sleeping bag (it is possible to rent with us).

What to bring equipment?

Note that there is a section where you can check what to wear. Trekking-expedition backpack between 60 and 70 liters, trekking shoes, sleeping bag and third layer parka jacket are the main ones, among other things.

What do we eat?

In all our expeditions we offer the service of meals IN FULL BOARD PLAN.

Difficulty graduation

Mochila: Peso / Duración de la Jornada.

Exigencia Física

Técnico: Dificultad en el Terreno / Equipo.

Fortaleza Psicológica

Exposición a la Altura

Backpack (M)

This point has to do with the weight that we must carry in our backpacks. Trekkings or crossings where we have pack animals allow us to bear less weight on our backs. And the multi-day journeys in Patagonia (without the option of having pack mules) generally make us carry more weight, especially in the early days.

20% Up to 5 Kilos: Short excursion walks / Trekking Talampaya

40% Up to 8/10 Kilos: Round-trip trekking / Vallecitos 3 and 4-day programs

60% Up to 12/15 kilos: Crossing trekking with porting / Crossing of the Andes Paso Portillo

80% More than 15/18 kilos: Cross-country trekkings with little or no portage / Trekkings in Patagonia (Paso Vuriloche, PN Lanin or Nahuel Huapi, etc)

100% More than 25 Kilos: With a lot of equipment on top and little or no porting / Continental Ice

Physical (F)

We consider physical demands to the wear that we can suffer both aerobic (climbs = possible shortness of breath) and muscle (resistance = many hours walking) and of legs and joints (descents = knees / ankles).

20% half a day or less with little unevenness.

40% more sustained slopes and longer days in the activity. 2-3 days / more than 6 hours per day.

60% Long ascents and descents with a longer duration. Ascents to more than 4000 meters in the central mountain range / intense 4-day trekking (Uruguayan plane)

80% Important work of legs in resistance. Very long days. Very long day ascents (Lanin - Domuyo) or more than 5000 meters. Ice courses.

100% Maximum demand. Aerobic work and constant effort on legs. Continental Ice, Aconcagua, mountains of more than 6000 meters.

Technical (T)

The technical difficulty is mainly based on the terrain. How much can it cost us to climb a slope, if it is very steep or if we have to use our hands in some section (simple climbing), both in rock and snow-ice, or materials such as crampons and pegs in other ascents.

20% flat land

40% trails with moderate ups and downs. General crossing trekkings . Sierra de la Ventana, Córdoba, Patagonia, Cuyo, north, others. Classic ascents

60% Steeper slopes and trails. Possible use of crampons. Domuyo, Cordón del Plata, Cordillera Central.

80% Mixed terrain, with snow or ice. Alvear, Lanin, Tronador. Bolivia, Peru.

100% Highly technical terrain. Glacial transit and climbing in sections. Hill climbing with sections on slopes of more than 60 ° inclination

Psycho (P)

We maintain that this point, the psychological factor, represents a relevant factor. Each one needs a factor of conviction, confidence, self-control and will power to achieve a goal. And depending on the attitude with which we face distances, slopes, terrain and many other objective factors, we can achieve performance with very different results.

20% We will not be much affected.

40% This is a normal level of attention.

60% We require more motivation, enthusiasm and concentration.

80% The activity will require us to be very connected and convinced.

100% Maximum control and emotional-psychological performance.

Adventures (A)

It is the factor that, the height above sea level, influences us depending on the activity we carry out. Managing and overcoming symptoms caused by altitude is the key to this point

0% + sea level.

20% Up to 2000 masl.

40% + 2000 masl.

60% + 4000 masl.

80% + 5000 masl.

100% + 6000 masl.
