Reviews of Cerro Arenales

Cerro Arenales is a 3,400 m high mountain in the heart of the Andes.

My suggestion:
If you want to explore the Andean countryside then take a 2 day trek to Cerro Arenales. Don't worry if you're not particularly sporty, the trek is not designed for sports fanatics.
Summary:

It's about 100 km from Mendoza, right in the middle of the Andes mountains which separate Argentina from Chile, to Cerro Arenales. From its summit there is a magnificent panorama over the arid region of Mendoza and its surroundings. 

If you want to explore the Andean countryside and wild life then I recommend you do a two day trek in Vallecitos where you can combine walking and exploring the local plant and animal life.

You're not much of a climber? No panic, the trek to Cerro Arrenales is very easy and everyone can go at their own pace. In our group we had both teenagers and seniors. A walk for everyone, whether you are 7 or 77!
