Julio

International Mountain Guide

Meet Julio, our guide’s leader. Just like Pedro, Julio`s family has a rich heritage in the mountaineering world.

His certification as a mountain guide given by the IFMGA (International Federation of Mountain Guides Association) along with the fact he is part of the only high altitude mountaineering rescue team (SOCORRO ANDINO BOLIVIANO) in the country makes Julio a very trustworthy guide in the mountains. Combine this with a friendly attitude and great experience leading successful expeditions to the major Bolivian peaks and you get one of the most requested guides in the country. We are certainly glad to have Julio in our staff list.

Gregorio

Nationally Certified Guide

Gregorio, apart from being an active member of the “Club Andino Boliviano” and Pedro`s uncle, has over 25 years of experience as a high altitude mountain guide.

As an authority in the mountaineering community in Bolivia, Gregorio has completed multiple courses in several alpine institutes. Due to his expertise and well recognized name, he has lead expeditions for the Military Institute of Geography, and the embassies of the USA, Germany, Brazil, Denmark and Spain in the Bolivian mountains.

Mario

Nationally Certified Guide

Living in the area under Sajama National Park, Mario is our supporting guide for the majestic volcanoes in the region where he is constantly guiding teams to reach Bolivia`s roof top.

His experience in the Bolivian Andes is accompanied by expeditions to the other side of the border in Chile where he has lead groups to Ojos del Salado, South America`s second highest mountain. Mario is known for his versatility and strength.

Pedro Luis

Nationally Certified Guide

Pedro is our director and coordinator at “Bolivian Mountaineering”. Having being raised in a family of guides, his great experience precedes his reputation in the high altitude mountaineering community in Bolivia.

With an early start in the world of mountaineering, Pedro has lead several successful expeditions to most of the major mountains in Bolivia. Being a lover of mountains and nature he will be the right guy for those looking for new routes as well as challenging technical ones. As a friendly and fun person (yes, he speaks English!!!), Pedro has taken care of VIP while working for the most prominent tour companies of Bolivia…… Pedro in short, is a true mountain man.

Josué

Local Medical Support - Company doctor

Josue obtained his degree in medicine from the most prestigious institution of the country “Universidad Mayor de San Andres” in La Paz.

His research on physiology at high altitude has helped several local and foreign athletes in their high altitude expeditions by providing treatment to conditions which may arise before and after their journey into the heights of the Andes. Due to his experience in mountaineering and his fluency in English Josue is a very important member of our team providing support at both base and high camps. His presence in our team reassures our compromise with safety and we are very proud to count with Josue in “Bolivian Mountaineering”.

High altitude mountain huts

THE MOUNTAINEER’S HOUSE

This hut, at 5130m altitude, serves as the high camp for Huayna Potosi. This mountain is the most popular in Bolivia and sleeping space is limited in the high season. We have a longstanding relationship with the Mountaineer’s House: they guarantee our clients will always have a bed.

THE FISHERMAN’S HOUSE

This newly built hut provides a perfect base from which to discover the Condoriri valley, which holds some of Bolivia’s most varied climbing and trekking. We are proud  to be able to offer our clients access to the best accommodation in the area.

POSADA PANATURA MARIANA

Located in Sajama National Park, Posada Panatura Mariana is a cozy, comfortable base to explore the nearby volcanoes. It is owned and run by one of our guides (Mario) and his wife:  you’ll be very well looked after!
