Highlights

 
     

    Climb one of the two 6,000-meter summits in 6 days. An unforgettable mountaineering trip in the Bolivian Andes. 

    The Chachacomani is a 6074-meter-high summit and one of the highest snow-capped peaks in the Andes. Together with the Chearoko (6150 m), they form a massif which lies between Illampu-Ancohuma and Condoriri.

    With some snow terrains and deep mountain cracks, its landscape offers a circular barrier around the Chachacomani. That is why the access to these mountains is a bit technical. In fact, they are literally hidden in the heart of the massif.

    In addition to have some prior climbing experience it is also mandatory to have a good fitness level. Please keep in mind that, although you will choose one peak to climb both involve a physically demanding ascent.

    At the bottom of this page you will find a sample itinerary with the two options. Regardless the summit you choose, the total expedition will take 6 days.

    Finally, let me tell you that if you’re looking for an easier climb you should then check out my 3-day adventure to Huayna Potosí.
