Jenaro is an IFMGA certified mountain guide, and he wants to take you on a beautiful 3 day hiking expedition down into the Chacapampa valley.
Bolivia is one of those countries that can easily classified as a hikers dream. There are so many different regions that are ripe for short, medium, or long hiking expeditions. And each one will present you with an incredible amount of pure, natural beauty that you will never forget. And on this trip, you will get to hike for 3 days through the Condoriri massif, until we descend into the unforgettable Chacapampa valley.
Well known for its altitude, participants in this trip should arrive a few days early so they can properly acclimatize. Thus ensuring that you will have an enjoyable, worry free hiking journey. Participants should also be in good physical condition in order to handle the rigours of the trek as well.
The trip will begin in the city of La Paz (3,640m). From there, we will take a 2 hour drive to the Tuni lagoon (4,200m). After that we will hike for 3 hours until we reach the Chiarkhota lagoon (4,600m), where we will set up camp and sleep for the night.
The second day of the trip will see us hiking from the Chiarkhota lagoon to the Livinosa lagoon (3,800m), where we will camp for the night.
Finally, on the third and final day of the hike, we will make our way down into the Chacapampa valley (3,400m). You will have a lot of time here to explore and admire the gorgeous area. After lunch, we will then take a transport back to La Paz.
Throughout this hike to the Chacapampa valley, you will get to enjoy some absolutely stunning views of not only the various lagoons and landscape, but also of the Cordillera Real, including the beautiful and massive Huayna Potosi mountain (6,088m). If you would like to join me, please send me a request.
Would you like to climb the great Huayna Potosi mountain? If you do, I can help you do so on this 2 day trek.
Camping in various sites during the hike.
Llamas, donkeys or mules will help carry the equipment, food, and tents during the trek; however, participants should carry their own personal equipment, so remember to pack only what is essential.
I work together with several IFMGA/UIAGM colleagues. So if I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues equally certified will guide you.
I began to climb the mountain when I was 15 years old. I was born in Pinaya (3.800 m.a.s.l.), a region located not far away from the top of the base camp of the majestic snow-covered Illimani (6.462 m.a.s.l.). I dedicated most part of my life to climb different ice and Rock Mountains through the Cordillera Real, Cordillera Occidental, and Cordillera de Apolobamba.
Jenaro was not my guide for this trip even if I was not aware of it
