Type of Trip
A unique adventure during which you’ll conquer 4 summits of the magical Bolivian Andes!
During these 5 day across the Condoriri Mountain Range, you’ ll have the opportunity to discover four of the main summits in this Bolivian region:
- Pequeño Alpamayo (5.370 m),
- Piramide Blanca (5.230 m),
- Mount Illusion (5.330 m)
- And, of course, the highest peak: Cabeza del Condor at 5.370 m.
Although those summits are not as high as other peaks of the country, the mixed terrain and the technical skills needed make this trip a real alpine challenge. It is therefore important to go there with a local IFMGA guide who can guarantee the safest experience.
If you want more information about the program, please find the day by day itinerary at the end of this page. And if you’re in search of a shorter expedition in the Condoriri mountain range, check out this 3-day ascent to the Cabeza del Condor summit.
This 5-day adventure provides us with all the ingredients for a perfect expedition. Come climb with me the most important peaks in Condoriri. I will be waiting for your contact so we can plan this trip together.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
La Paz - Lago Tuni - Las Alas
A transfer will take us from La Paz to Lago Tuni, and up to the base camp for Condoriri, where we will have our first views of Cabeza del Cóndor and Las Alas (The Wings), an amazing rock formation.
We will leave our base camp at 5 AM so we can first climb the Pico Tarija at 5.300 meters and then, the Pequeño Alpamayo Peak (5.350m). We will return to base camp.
Ilusion Peak + Acclimatization
Early start to reach the summit of Pico Ilusion (5,350 m). Although it is not a high climb, it will let us practice different skills, such as glacial traverse, and will help in our preparation for the main goal: Cabeza del Condor.
Cabeza del Condor
It will be a long day in direction to the Cabeza del Condor’s summit. The ascent is gently until we enter into an ice canyon. Here the climb becomes more technical. Once at the summit, we’ll return by the same route to our base camp.
Estancia Tuni - La Paz
We will return to Estancia Tuni, where our transfer will be waiting for us in order to take us back to La Paz.
About the Guide
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!
