Early in the morning, we’ll leave La Paz and drive to the Rinconada ranch where the vehicle will drop us off.
Then, after rounding up a team of llamas or mules for our gear, we’ll go on a 2-hour trek to the Chiar Khota Lake (4,630m), where we will set up our base camp.
This ascent will take us about 4 hours, the views from the summit of Pico Austria are impressive and you will enjoy the entire Condoriri massif.
We will begin our summit day with an early departure (5.00am).
First, we’ll climb the Pico Tarija (5,300m) and then, we will continue ascending to Pequeño Alpamayo (5,425 m).
In the morning we will pack up camp and begin the return to the Rinconada Ranch where our vehicle will be waiting to take us back to La Paz.

Notice, you should endeavour to book any climbs as much in advance as you can.
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!
