What should I know about Mountain Climbing Bolivia?
The climb to the top of Acotango is not technically challenging, however, there are some quite steep sections. You’ll need the stamina to reach the summit and a good level of fitness. It’s possible to drive to base camp at 4,900 meters and the road remains drivable until around 5,600 meters, so depending on where you drive to, you can complete the climb in as little as four hours. Make the most of the awesome mountains around like Parinacota and Pomerape.
