Certified AMGA and IFMGA Guided Alpine Climbing in Bolivia.
Located in the heart of South America, Bolivia is the most Indian of the Andean countries, with about fifty percent of its inhabitants being descendants of Aymara and Quechua cultures. It is still an unspoiled country and its natural beauty and abundance of mountains, most of them easily accessible, is overwhelming. Huayna Potosí (19,974′ / 6,088M) is the closest high mountain to La Paz, Bolivia, a city which is surrounded by high mountains, and itself is the highest capital city in the world.
The Cordillera Real (Royal Range), is Bolivia’s foremost climbing region with eight peaks rising above 6,000m and the base for most of our mountaineering and climbing objectives.
Start off with acclimatization climbs in the beautiful and remote Condorirri Range on such technically challenging peaks as: Pequeno Alpamayo (5,370M / 17,618′), Pyramide Blanca (5230M / 17,158′), and Cabeza de Condor (5,648M / 18,530′), before tackling one of the incredibly aesthetic and memorable climbs of such bigger mountains as Huayna Potosí (19,974′ / 6,088M) or Illimani (6,438M / 21, 122′).
This unique trip is designed as a multi-week international climbing expedition, to maximize both the acclimitization process needed for climbing 6000M peaks, and to develop and build upon an alpine climbing skill set.
With a wealth of high altitude climbing on routes at all difficulty levels, in a beautiful and unspoiled place, and with ease of access right out of the international city of La Paz, Bolivia is an alpine climbers dream !
