We will meet in La Paz to check our gear, go over the itinerary, and start getting acclimatized to the Andes.
We will take an extra day to acclimatize in La Paz. You can take advantage of this opportunity to see the beautiful culture and history of the city.
We begin by heading to the Condoriri Valley to rent burros to take us to Base Camp. We will settle in next to a beautiful and scenic lake after a few hours of hiking.
A moderate hike through the main glacier will take us to a steep ice and snow climb. After we take in our accomplishment, we will head back to Base Camp.
We will start moving towards our next goal, Huayana Potosi. With the help of porters, we will set up our Base Camp in the foothills.
This day is reserved for moving us to the High Camp.
Starting early, we will brave the snow climbing and reach the top of Huayana Potosi. Descending down, we aim to make it back to La Paz.
We will stay in La Paz for a well-deserved rest day.
We will begin our journey to the highest peak of the Cordillera Real. We will meet the llamas and their handler at 15,000 feet.
We will carry a load to High Camp at 18,000 feet, and then return to Base Camp.
We will move to our High Camp, and enjoy the views that accompany our altitude.
We will start early and trek across the glacier crevasses of Illimani. A steep face leads us to the summit, with incomparable views of the rest of the Andes.
We will return to La Paz for a celebration dinner, and to reminisce on a wonderful adventure!
