About the guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Bolivia

I worked for several adventure tourism companies in Bolivia, guiding mountaineering, rock climbing, ski touring and ice climbing.

I love all the mountain activities, and travelled all along the Andes range, climbing peaks like Illampu, Chachacomani, Telata, Tiquimani, Sajama, Parinacota, Pisco in Peru and Aconcagua in Argentina.

I also did ascents in the Alps and in Australia.

I was trained in Chamonix by the French mountaineering school (ENSA).

I also worked as instructor in Bolivia’s guiding school, training new guides.

Get in touch with me if you are interested in discovering any of the unique mountain spots in Bolivia!
