Description

I invite you to a 9-day adventure to Pequeño Alpamayo (5370m) in the impressive 'Cordillera Real' in Bolivia. This beautiful peak is near the city of La Paz, in the Andean plateau.

The ‘Cordillera Real’ in Bolivia is one of the key spots of the Andes mountain range. Its white peaks are the background for one of the most impressive areas of the continent: the Bolivian plateau.

It is a huge highland similar to the Tibetan, which starts from the Titicaca Lake and has an average altitude of 4000 meters above sea level.

La Paz is the capital city of Bolivia and still keeps its Andean roots, with plenty of markets in parks and streets.

The city is at a very high altitude (3700 m). Because of this, we'll spend two nights there for acclimatization. Meanwhile, we'll prepare everything for the expedition.

Then we'll continue to the Condoriri region, a beautiful area with several peaks that go over 5000 mt.

We will set our base camp at 4600 mt, at a lagoon shore. Once there, we’ll practice the ice climbing tactics that we’ll use during the ascent in a nearby glacier.

First, we'll climb ‘Pirámide Blanca’ mountain, where we can practice roping techniques to walk on glaciers.

Our final goal will be the beautiful white peak of Pequeño Alpamayo. There, we will implement everything we practiced the previous days.

Please contact me if you want to be a part of this exciting expedition to Pequeño Alpamayo, one of the most beautiful peaks in Bolivia!

I am an Argentinian IFMGA mountain guide, who also enjoys traveling to the Andes in Perú and Argentina

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
