Welcome to a challenging experience, perfect for climbers with considerable experience!

Located in the north of the Cordillera Real, there is the 6490-meter-high Jankhouma Mountain (or Ancohuma). Its name comes from the Aymara language and means “crystalline water”. This is the highest mountain of the massif and it is surrounded by the most stunning large glaciers. Furthermore, from its top you will see a really amazing panoramic view of the Bolivian Andes.

The first people to reach the Jankhouma’s summit were Rud Dienst and Adolf Schulze, leaders of a German expedition in 1919. Now it’s your turn! I will guide you through its north face route. It includes ice slopes of 45-50 degrees of inclination. Finally, we will reach the great crest that leads to the top. Undoubtedly it will be the trip of a lifetime!

Find more information of the itinerary at the end of this page. You can also check out many other expeditions I offer in the Cordillera Real. For example, take a look at my 7-day trip to the Sajama and Parinacota volcanoes or this 9-day climbing expedition to Mount Illampu.
