Located about half way up the Aconcagua -- the highest mountain in Occident -- sits a magical makeshift camping site that finds itself amidst the colorful Andes mountains. Named 'Confluencia', due to its location at the convergence of two glacial rivers, the camp pops each year between the months of November and March, and then leaves the mountains without a trace. This spectacular destination finds visitors from all over the world descending upon the mountain each year, and we recently had a chance to visit the enchanting spot and set up camp. Click ahead for the exclusive images and story, and discover how life high up in the mountains can be low-impact, serene and extremely beautiful.
