DID YOU KNOW?

This itinerary can be extended to 5 days to include summiting Huayna Potosi. This is a great way to ensure you are fully acclimatised.

The Zongo valley through which we pass contains the hydroelectric plant which supplies energy to all of La Paz.

Day 1

After a 2-and-a-half-hour drive from La Paz we arrive to La Rinconada (4400m) where donkeys will be waiting to take our equipment to Laguna Chiarkota (4600m) which is an hour’s hike away. This lagoon will serve as our camp for day 1. We will spend the rest of the day taking in the Cordillera massif and acclimatising by doing nearby short hikes.

Day 2

Today we will climb two mountain passes, both of which are at an altitude of roughly 4900m. We will then start to descend towards Laguna Livinosa (4250m), noting the altitude-related change in vegetation and landscape as we approach our next campsite in Ancoma (3750m).

Day 3

Today we descend further into the Zongo valley. The vegetation changes, the temperature rises, and the air becomes noticeably thicker and easier to breathe! We finish our day in Botijlaca (3670m) where we will have a car waiting for us to drive back to La Paz.
