Situated 62.5 kilometers north of La Paz and rising to an impressive elevation of 6.074 meters above sea level, Chachacomani is one of the least climbed peaks in the Andes.
Home to sheltered valleys, glaciers and lakes, the peak inhabits various different microclimates, which makes for a unique climbing experience. There are plenty of opportunities to see native wildlife as well as experience the sublime beauty of Bolivia’s backcountry
Most mountain climbing trips to the summit take about six days, though many climbers opt to visit other peaks in the Cordillera Real as well. The climbing is a bit technical and requires quite a bit of endurance. As a result ascents of the peak are best suited to intermediate-level climbers with a good level of physical fitness.
From May to August is Bolivia’s dry season, when little precipitation falls/ Expect average daily temperatures around freezing toward the base of the mountain. These decrease as you gain elevation to as far as -10 ºC.
Any trip to Chachacomani begins with a flight into El Alto International Airport (LPB) in La Paz. Most guides will opt to meet you here and provide transport to the start of the trip.
