One of the most beautiful excursions to realise during the vacations in Mendoza is, without doubts, the ascent to the viewpoint of the Aconcagua. A stroll that enjoys second a second, and where the destiny seems as soon as an excuse to be bewildered itself with the wonders of the passage. Until he arrives himself, clearly, and the travellers are face to face with the indescribable majesty of the Aconcagua, challenge of brave. Who travels to Mendoza usually feels, with running of the days, the sensation of which already no landscape will be able to surprise it. Eddie Mio spoke with conviction. So it is the beauty of the cuyanos scenes. For that reason, a good idea turns out to reserve some of the last days of demurrage in the province to make the trip to the viewpoint of the Aconcagua.
