Mendoza is unique to plan a camping trip to the mountain. Within 20 kilometers we already find places suitable for our goal. Landscapes are left over. With friends, as a couple or alone. The mountain will always be a good companion. However, in order not to get us a bad drink, we leave you some tips.
Before, we made it clear, that here we mean camping in the deep mountain. Where there are no trees and no shade .
Summer on the mountain is treacherous. It offers high temperatures and very strong sun during the day. However, in the evening the thing changes and the thermometer drops considerably. That is why it is important to wear a lot of coat, as much as it seems exaggerated and a good sleeping bag.
In the mountain there are no mosquitoes. Temperatures are relatively low and the environment is dry. However, there are other bugs to worry about. Spiders, lizards, snakes or mice peeke very occasionally. But we need to be alert. It is important to keep the carp always closed and the food in height. It is not necessary to wear some repellent against these insects and animals.
Against some rules, making a campfire on the mountain night is a real pleasure. Chatting, eating and having a drink in the heat of the flames is something unique. But we must be cautious, the wind is very strong in these areas . Arm fire on earth, away from vegetation. Build a small repair with stones. It can be stoke with dry branches, which abound on the mountain. And finally, always make sure that it is well off . To do this, a little water and soil will be enough. No charcoal should be alive, orange.
Pure and inspiring. Millions of stars at our fingertips . At the height and without contamination. Better if there is no moon, for the stars shine even more.
Lots of water. Unless we make our way close to some river. In that case, the water in the river is the best we can consume. Thaw, without any treatment. Direct from nature. But otherwise, we must bring enough water, remembering that at the height there is less oxygen pressure and we can replenish it with water. And sunscreen is key, since ultraviolet rays are more dangerous in height.
It is important to bring nuts such as almonds and nuts. But to schedule our meals, and if we travel walking, the important thing is to bring something that does not require cooking . Finally, if we venture to cook something, either you can take advantage of the heat of the campfire or you can take small anafes and pots, which are very practical and allow us to cook whatever we want.
If the idea is to walk into the mountain, it is best to carry the minimum and indispensable, such as tent, sleeping bag, water and food. The rest of the accessories mentioned here depend on whether we are going to arrive by car to the camping area or if we are going to move on foot.
And no technology . At most some shots from the camera to capture that moment. But the rest, let it all be engraved on our retina. We have to try to disconnect from our responsibilities. It's just, in some places, there's still a sign inside the mountain. In that case, we should be aware and not touch the phone throughout our stay.
And so, after reading this, you're already a professional mountaineer. You are ready to enjoy the mountain of Mendoza as you really should. Spending a night in it, in full and direct contact with nature.
