Tour Summary

Chachacomani sits right in the centre of the Cordillera Real. We are excited to offer this new route for a mountain which is slowly gaining popularity amongst Bolivian mountaineers. Our guides Gregorio and Pedro Mamani were the first to attempt the summit in 2010 and Gregorio was the first to reach it shortly afterwards. Today’s route poses no technical challenge as it follows a relatively flat glacier track which never gets steeper than 50°.

DID YOU KNOW?

Chachacomani is the name of a local plant used in herbal teas which are said to cleanse the bodies of men.

Day 1

We leave La Paz early and drive to Alto Cruz Pampa (4500m) via Copacabana. Here we load our equipment onto donkeys and hike to our base camp (4620m) along a picturesque valley. 

Day 2

We transfer our equipment to porters and continue hiking up to the high camp (5200m) at the base of the glacier.

Day 3

We leave very early and traverse the glacial plateau surrounding Pico Centinela, eventually arriving at the summit (6070m). We return by the same route but continue on down to the base camp where we spend the night.

Day 4

We make our way back to Alto Cruz Pampa where a car is waiting to take us back to La Paz.
