The excursion starts from Santiago or Viña del Mar, from where one goes by road to the city of Los Andes. The journey continues along the international highway that goes to Mendoza. We quickly start the ascent of the mountains and the road takes us by a serpentine route above the upper reaches of the Aconcagua River. This is a dramatic, at times vertiginous road, with landscapes of overwhelming precipitousness, orchards and vineyards, spectacularly dominated by mountains and rivers. We pass by the Soldier's Leap, where legend relates that a nationalist soldier jumped this enormous precipice whilst fleeing on horseback from the royalist forces. Further on we arrive at Rio Blanco (1.200 m.) where we start our horse trek accompanied by the muleteers in charge of organising and preparing the barbecue in the midst of the mountains.
From this point the mountain will show us its most hidden secrets as we ascend through scenery not unlike the state of California in the United States. Big cactus adapted to these heights, in the midst of native woods, alongside streams, accompany our trek. After travelling through the mountain valleys for 2 hours we come to Potrero Alto (2,300 m.) where we will prepare the barbecue. The view from this point of the snow capped mountains is spectacular.
