Members of the Mountaineering Alpine Club „Summit“ from Banjaluka successfully climbed Aconcagua, the highest peak in South America located at 6,962 meters above sea level.

The expedition lasted a record eight days. Miroslav Bundalo, a member of „Summit“, said that winds reached a speed of a 100 km per hour and that due to harsh weather conditions the team had to speed up their climb.

The expedition to the highest peak in South America is part of the “Seven Summits” project, which includes conquering the highest peaks on the seven continents.

Members of “Summit” have already conquered the highest peak of Europe Elbrus and Kilimanjaro in Africa.
