- Climb Pequeno Alpamayo (5370m), Huayna Potosi (6088) & Illimani (6438m).
- The altiplano of Bolivia, the wildest part of the Andes.
26 million years ago it occurred a phenomenon that would forever change the geography of South America, the collision of continental and Nazca plates formed what is now the Andes mountain range which continues growing to this days.
The royal cordillera of the Bolivian Andes can offer some advantages over other mountain ranges like the Himalayas. For example the proximity of many of its peaks to the city of La Paz; Most of the mountains are accessible by roads used for mining or agriculture, different degrees of difficulty on the routes to the different peaks, a relatively stable climate that allows a better experience in trekking and mountain and of course a privileged view from its peaks due to the Andes mountain range separating two major ecological zones: the highlands and the beginning of the cloud forests to reach the Amazon.
One of the requirements for such expeditions is an optimal physical condition and a certain degree of experience and endurance.
For this purpose, acclimatization is almost mandatory if you want to be efficient on the mountain. We also suggest a thorough medical examination before sign up for these expeditions and also inform us of underlying diseases or if you are under some drug treatment.
Both mountaineering and trekking are activities involving effort, so we must be very responsible with the confidence dealing risks.
Then we work with Bolivian mountain guides ,internationally certified by the UIAGM / IFMGA and tested for their rigorous standards. They will always be in command in these expeditions.
Despite all the safety measures in the expedition it can happen exceptional situations such as weather conditions, inadequate acclimatization, disease or simply the fact that physiologically react in a negative way to the altitude; They could force a change in the itinerary, only to take measures for their safety and expedition team.
