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
