Description

Do you want to enjoy the Bolivian snow and ascend a mythical peak? During this ski touring trip we will ascend different peaks in Cordillera Real, culminating with Huayna Potosi. 

Acclimatization is very important for this trip, as we will be in high altitudes and we want to enjoy the ascents. Therefore, our first adventure will be the trek to Muela del Diablo. Muela del Diablo is a small peak with a shape that resembles a molar.  It’s a rather easy trek, near the city of La Paz, perfect to start getting acclimatized.

Then we will transfer to Janq’u Uyu for an ascent ski touring followed by a beautiful and long descent. This peak rises to 5520 meters. It’s a unique destination in Cordillera Real, not very well known.

After returning to La Paz, we finally set for the ascent of Huayna Potosi. Its impressive 6088 meters are definitely a challenge, but we will be well prepared! Although this mountain is very famous and popular for climbers, few people do this ascent ski touring. From its summit we will marvel at the views over La Paz, the Altiplano and the Cordillera Real.

Tempted by this ski touring week in the Cordillera Real? Then please send me a request, as I would love to guide you there! And if you are looking for a shorter trip you can have a look at this other ski mountaineering one in Huayna Potosi.

About the guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Bolivia

I worked for several adventure tourism companies in Bolivia, guiding mountaineering, rock climbing, ski touring and ice climbing.

I love all the mountain activities, and travelled all along the Andes range, climbing peaks like Illampu, Chachacomani, Telata, Tiquimani, Sajama, Parinacota, Pisco in Peru and Aconcagua in Argentina.

I also did ascents in the Alps and in Australia.

I was trained in Chamonix by the French mountaineering school (ENSA).

I also worked as instructor in Bolivia’s guiding school, training new guides.

Get in touch with me if you are interested in discovering any of the unique mountain spots in Bolivia!
