Jun, Jul, Aug
Early departure from La Paz to the Rinconada Ranch by vehicle. Then, after rounding up a team of llamas or mules for our gear, we have a 2 hour trek to the Chiar Khota Lagoon (4,630m), where we will set up our first base camp.
We will have another alpine start, as it is a long day to reach up to the Cabeza del Condor summit. The terrain begins on very loose rock until we reach the ice, turning the climbing into a more technical one. Once in the summit and after some pictures, we’ll start our return by the same route to our base camp.
Early in the morning we will begin the return to the Rinconada where our vehicle will be waiting to take us back to La Paz. Ending of our services.
IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Bolivia.
I made my first ascent at an early age. I have been guiding professionally for over 20 years, passed safety and rescue courses in the sister Republic of Peru with Swiss trainers, and my training culminated with the French school of the ENSA (National School of Sky & Mountaineering) International certification UIAGM opt / IFMGA.
I conquered the Summit of Bolivar, Humboldt and others in Venezuela, the peaks of Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador, Alpamayo and Huascaran in Peru, and also reached the summit of Aconcagua (6954 m) twice the same day from Base Camp ( Plaza de Mulas) in Argentina.
My knowledge of the Cordillera Real in Bolivia is very extensive, so much so that I helped the Military Geographical Institute produce their map of the Cordillera Real (the only official map of the area). I am an active member of the Bolivian Andean Club.
I was also hired by the President of Bolivia (then) - Jorge Quiroga - to climb Huayna Potosi and many delegations of embassies.
Nowadays I work together with a group of local guides, also AGMTB and IFMGA. So if I can't guide myself the trip you request, a colleague of mine will guide to an unforgettable time in the Bolivian mountains!
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
