Tour Summary

Our full day hike to Pico Austria is great way to get very close to the mountains of the Cordillera Real if you are short on time. It also serves as an excellent acclimatisation hike if you feel ready to push yourself a bit further than Chacaltaya.

FUL DAY PICO AUSTRIA(5350m.) IN CONDORIRI AREA.

We need to leave La Paz early to make the most of our day. We will drive to La Rinconada (4400m) from where we walk for an hour to Laguna Chiarkota (4600m), the basecamp often used to climb mountains in the area. From here we start to climb up to Pico Austria (5300m), first reaching a saddle (5100m) and then the peak itself. There are breathtaking views of the Condoriri Massif and the neighbouring peaks. This day requires 6-7 hours of walking with an elevation gain of 900m.
