Description

Would you like to slide across the slopes of a 6,000-meter peak? Then take part of this splitboarding program in Huayna Potosí and make it happen!

First of all, we’ll go for an acclimatization trek to Muela del Diablo which is 3,825 meters high. Then, our next stop will be Janq’u Uyu, a mountain in the Cordillera Real that is 5,512 meters above sea level. We’ll go up and then enjoy splitboarding down. Finally, we’ll go to Huayna Potosí. Also located in the Cordillera Real, this is one of the most popular peaks in the range and it has an altitude of 6,088 meters. From the top of the mountain, we’ll be able to contemplate the astonishing views of the Bolivian AndesTake a look at the description of the itinerary at the bottom of the page for a more detailed account of the program.

Finally, take into consideration that it is very important to have prior splitboarding or skiing experience as well as a good physical condition to join this program. The ascent to Huayna Potosí will be challenging, but the descent will be rewarding.

Do you find this splitboarding tour interesting? Then send the request and make your reservation to join this fantastic adventure in Bolivia.

If you are interested in exploring the Cordillera Real, I suggest you take a look at my climb to Mount Illimani, also a 6000-meter peak.

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Bolivia

I worked for several adventure tourism companies in Bolivia, guiding mountaineering, rock climbing, ski touring and ice climbing.

I love all the mountain activities, and travelled all along the Andes range, climbing peaks like Illampu, Chachacomani, Telata, Tiquimani, Sajama, Parinacota, Pisco in Peru and Aconcagua in Argentina.

I also did ascents in the Alps and in Australia.

I was trained in Chamonix by the French mountaineering school (ENSA).

I also worked as instructor in Bolivia’s guiding school, training new guides.

Get in touch with me if you are interested in discovering any of the unique mountain spots in Bolivia!
