Discover the amazing Esperanza Lake on this 3-day hike. Join IFMGA-certified Jenaro through the Bolivian plateau and views of the Macizo Condoriri.
This hiking traverse to Esperanza Lake is only 2 hours outside La Paz. It is a great way to enjoy the views of the impressive Macizo Condoriri in the Bolivian Andes. I will guide you through these amazing views during three days.
On Day 1, I will pick you up at La Paz. We will then travel to Tuni and camp on Chiarkhota lagoon (4,700 m).
Next, on Day 2 we will hike to Esperanza Lake, through mountain passes of 4,900 m and 5,100 m.
Finally, on Day 3 I will guide you to the base camp of Huayna Potosí. Once there, you can either return to La Paz or climb the Huayna Potosí.
On the hike to Esperanza Lake, I will take you through the Bolivian plateau. You will also witness impressive views of the Condoriri mountain. Famously, its three main peaks unfold mirroring the wings of the Andean Condor.
While I rate the level of this hike as Easy, I also recommend a good acclimatization and good physical shape.

I work together with several IFMGA/UIAGM colleagues. So if I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues equally certified will guide you.
I began to climb the mountain when I was 15 years old. I was born in Pinaya (3.800 m.a.s.l.), a region located not far away from the top of the base camp of the majestic snow-covered Illimani (6.462 m.a.s.l.). I dedicated most part of my life to climb different ice and Rock Mountains through the Cordillera Real, Cordillera Occidental, and Cordillera de Apolobamba.
