Description

This 4-day climbing program in Bolivia will take us to the top of one of the most impressive snow covered mountains in the world. I invite all advanced climbers and adventure lovers to conquer the great Illimani!

At the southern end of the Cordillera Real and 72 km from La Paz, Illimani is the guardian mountain of Bolivia’s capital city. At an altitude of 6462 meters, this majestic peak is the highest mountain in the Cordillera Real and the second highest in the entire country.

Our tour will start in La Paz and from there, we’ll transfer to Pinaya, a small village located at 3,800 meters above sea level. After a 3 hour hike, we’ll set up camp in Puente Roto. Then, on the next day, we’ll continue going up. Finally,  on our third day, we’ll reach the summit of the great Illimani. All of our hard work will pay off at the top once we catch the breathtaking views of the surrounding Andes and its valleys. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!

I am sure you will keep this 4-day climbing program among your best memories. Send your request and let’s start planning your trip now!
