- Altitude: 6,542m
- Duration: 20 Days
Three weeks incorporating a trek through the Andes, two 6,000m+ summits and a mountain biking adventure down the “Road of Death”. This is a mind blowing adventure, not for the light-hearted, which will take you through your paces - do you dare!!!
Arrive in La Paz, transfer from airport to hotel. Afternoon tour of the city.
Departure for Copacabana, on the shores of Lake Titicaca, sleep in Copacabana.
Boat to the Island of the Sun and a chance to explore the pre-Inca constructions that still exist there. Return to La Paz.
An acclimatisation trip to Chacaltaya, the highest ski slope in the world, at 5,300m. There is the opportunity to try out some skiing, but only for those brave enough to take on the black slopes up there! Return to La Paz.
Start of a six-day spell in the wilderness, three days trekking and three days climbing. Today we will depart for the Condoriri range and trek towards Laguna Chiar Khota. Camp by the lagoon.
Crossing two passes over 4,900m and accompanied by our llamas and porters, the Andean landscapes get more and more impressive as the day goes by. Camp by Ancona.
Our last day of trekking takes us to the base camp of Huayna Potosi.
A day to practise various different techniques on the glacier.
Trek up to the high camp (Camp Argentino) at 5,4,25m
An early start to attack the summit in time for sunrise. We will then return to base camp where our vehicle will be waiting for us to return to La Paz.
Rest day in La Paz.
Mountain biking down the road of death! Whereas until recently, the mountain road to the Yungas was used by hundreds of trucks, lorries and cars on a daily basis, the construction of a new, wider, safer road for the traffic has left the “Road of Death” purely a bikers route. The downhill madness begins at 4,650m at the La Cumbre pass and ends 3,500m lower down, in the village of Yolosa. A vehicle will then take us to the hillside retreat of Coroico - beautiful!
Rest day in Coroico. Those still with itchy feet can try horse riding or a 4x4 trek through the nearby coca plantations.
Return to La Paz
Departure for the Sajama National Park and a short trek to base camp. Time to tackle the country's highest mountain.
Trek from base camp (4,800m) to high camp (5,700m).
Attempt for the summit. The route is not technical but is physically demanding, with an average gradient of 50º. Once reaching the summit at 6,542m, we will return to the base camp.
Trek from base camp to Wincurata where we will have the chance to enjoy the gorgeous thermal baths, before returning to La Paz.
Rest day in La Paz.
Transfer to the airport for return flight.
