Mount Champaquí Climbing Notes

I hiked the Champaqui with a group of friends in late April 2017. Much later than that and it gets too cold. The Refugio is not heated! Bring a warm sleeping bag. It was just above freezing at night.
Book the Refugio ahead too as it was quite crowded when we were there though mostly that was bad timing as a group of school children were there at the same time. Getting there from Cordoba airport with a rental car is not hard even though it had rained the night before and the last "bit" was dirt road and muddy.
One thing I cannot emphasize enough is to bring GPS on your cell phone and back up battery pack. I am an experienced hiker and my friends made fun of me. The trail is hard to follow at times and on our first night a mist enfolded us so quickly just before we got to the refugio you could not see 5 feet in from of you!! We even got off track and were able to get back on thanks to my GPS!
Other than that it was a great hike. We did it in 3 days and two nights but if you get up early the second day you can feasibly make it in two days one night. It's a long second day though and you had better be in good shape! Enjoy!
