Aconcagua is the highest mountain in South America and also Earth's highest mountain outside of Asia and in the Southern and Western Hemisphere. It is believed to have been a holy mountain for the Inca. The first known ascent of Aconcagua took place in 1897. Being one of the Seven Summits it is a very popular destination for mountaineers from all over the world. Climbing Aconcagua is not particularly difficult and hardly requires any advanced climbing skills. The ascent is not free of risks, though. Low temperatures, strong winds, and altitude sickness can challenge climbers, especially on the upper part of the mountain.
