Three members of a Cypriot mountaineering team that left Cyprus at the beginning of January have managed to reach the summit of Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the western and southern hemispheres located in the Andes.
 
Led by expert mountain climber Alexis Economides, owner of Limassol-based travel company ‘Peak World Adventure’, the team faced oxygen levels of only 43 per cent compared to sea level and temperatures of up to -30 degrees Celsius.
 
The conditions during the trek were so severe that several members of the expedition team were forced to pull out.
