ACONCAGUA EXPEDITION

After the success of our 2019 expedition, Everest One is heading back to Mendoza, Argentina for another climb of Aconcagua again in 2020. The highest mountain outside of Asia and the 2nd highest mountain of the 7 summits. 

 

We will be climbing with expert local guides, through our partnership with one of the most professional and accomplished companies in South America, to bring you this amazing opportunity.

 

If standing on the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas, whilst taking in incredible views of the Andes excites you, then Aconcagua is waiting for you and will be a trip of a lifetime.


We already have a high level of interest to join this expedition and will be taking a maximum group size of 12 climbers. 

Famed for its red wines and amazing steaks, we won't be spending the entire trip in the Argentina mountains, however! 

 

To join, you do not require any previous climbing experience but you will need to be very fit, have a great sense of adventure along with the right preparation and gear for the conditions.

Allan Cohrs BM is the owner of Everest One and personally guides on many of our trips. 

Sharing time with Allan in the mountains is a common theme most of our guests regularly comment on and part of the reason why so many of our guests keep coming back.

 

He is down to earth, humble, approachable, discreet, professional, caring and wants you to succeed, but also help you create unforgettable memories along the way. 

You will also be supported by our expert Sherpa guides who have been hand-picked for their professionalism and experience, many of whom have reached the summit of Mt Everest and other high-altitude peaks.

 

Having that experience beside you all the way, knowing that everything is taken care of, and your safety and success (in that order) are our primary focus, allows you to relax and feel confident with the decision you have made.

Allan will be leading the trek into Everest Base Camp along with the climb of Lobuche East.

He has guided in all corners of the globe with over 20 high altitude climbs in the Himalayas including Mt Everest (8850m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho Oyu (8200m), Baruntse (7129m) and Ama Dablam (6812m).

 

Allan regularly guides on many Himalayan peaks including Mera Peak (6476m), Lobuche East and Island Peak, and also leads trips in Africa with 13 summits of Mt Kilimanjaro (5895m) along with successful climbs of Aconcagua (6960m), the highest mountain in South America. 

He and his team are experts at managing clients in a high-altitude environment which has resulted in some of the highest success rates in both climbs and treks they lead. 

 

Their experience expands to handling logistics, decision making, assessing risk and managing a happy and harmonious team.
