Follow Rodrigo, an IFMGA-certified mountain guide, on a two-week adventure to some of the classic peaks in Bolivia´s Cordillera Real: Pequeno Alpamayo, Huayana Potosi, and Illimani.
Located in the western part of Bolivia, in the Andes Mountains, Pequeno Alpamayo, Huayana Potosi, and Illimani look out over various features below. From La Paz and Lake Titicaca to the Amazon Basin and the surrounding plateaus, this region is loaded with outstanding panoramas.
The proximity to the capital city makes it a tempting adventure, and it would be my pleasure to take you to these classic peaks. Pequeno Alpamayo has a glacier that, while not extremely technical, is a great way to get acclimatized to the environment.
Huayana Potosi offers a little bit of snow climbing as we make our way to its summit. Located in the epic Cordillera Real, it is a true gem and another step in preparing for an ascent of Illimani, the highest peak in the Cordillera Real.
This mountain, at 21,201 feet, is the tallest in the Cordillera Real, and will give you access to the best views of the surrounding Andes and its valleys.
Our two week excursion will begin in La Paz, within close proximity to all of our destination peaks. The culture of the city is an added bonus for our time spent getting acclimatized to the environment.
My vast knowledge of the Andes, this region, and climing in general will ensure we have a fun and safe program together. I would love to show you my favorite trails and locations in such a unique and inspiring land.
This is a long trip, so you should be in good physical condition to take part in it. You should have a reasonable level of fitness and have the mental fortitude to take on such a sustained program.
