Mule service
to carry loads

The majority of the companies that offer services in Aconcagua Park offer mule service to carry equipment and supplies from the trailheads of the Park to the approach camps and the base camps of the Normal and Polish Glacier Traverse Route.

The companies that offer guided expeditions include this service. For the mountaineers who wish to undertake the ascent on their own, it is possible to hire mules to move your equipment to:




Normal Route

Camp Confluencia (approach camp)
Plaza de Mulas base camp


Polish Glacier Traverse Route (An direct polish Glacier)

Camp Pampa de Leñas (approach camp)
Camp Casa de Piedra (approach camp)
Plaza Argentina base camp

South Wall

Camp Confluencia
Camp Plaza Francia

Each mule is able to carry up to 60 kilograms. 

The service of renting mules can also be utilized to descend people or to carry out evacuations in the case that a visitor needs assistance. 

The muleteers, very knowledgeable of the local topography of Aconcagua Park, are in charge of packing the loads and of guiding these trustable animals in the difficult geography of Aconcagua.  To assure the work, each muleteer has 3 mules at his disposal. 

The muleteers also have the duty of loading and unloading the equipment transported by the mules in the approach camps so that each person can use their belongings to sleep. 

These mountain folk, trained from when they where children to use mules and horses also collaborate with the visitors, assisting them to cross rivers and streams when the water level makes the crossing difficult or when the water temperatures are really low. 

The work and help to the visitors many times exceeds its normal duties, and because of this we suggest tipping the muleteers.  It will be well received by these people.
