Bolvian Andes High Altitude Expedition
Condorri (18,562 ft.)
Pequeno Alpamayo (17,716 ft)
Illamani (21,200 ft) - 19 days

Bolivia is one of our favorite international destinations.  A rich blend of native culture fills the country with flavor akin to Nepal.  The mountains of the Cordillera Real in Bolivia, hold some of the best introduction to high altitude mountaineering peaks in the Andes. 

We will begin our expedition in the high altitude city of La Paz (12,100 ft), where we will acclimatize for several days before heading off to our first objective.  We will travel through the small village of Estancia Tuni on our way into the Peaks of Condorri (18,562 ft.)  Pequeno Alpamayo (17,716 ft). 

These two peaks will be used as our introduction to the range and offer extremely aesthetic climbing with views of the amazon jungle on one side and the high plains on the other.  We will also have time to practice glacier skills and water fall ice climbing prior to our ascents on the nearby glacier. 

We then travel back to La Paz for some needed rest and to sample many of the fine restaurants.  Our next objective will be highest peak in the Cordillera Real, Illamani (21,200 ft).

The summit of Illamani requires a sustained effort, though even getting to the peak can be an adventure.  We leave from La Paz via a 4x4 vehicle traveling down the river valley through numerous rustic villages.  After crossing the river several times we come to our starting point for the climb, Estancia Una.  We will load all of our personal gear onto mules for our leisurely hike into bascamp (14,400 ft). 

From basecamp we will climb with the aid of high altitude porters to El Nido De Condors, our high camp (17,880 ft).  We wake up early for the summit traveling over glaciers and steep ridges to a beautiful summit.

Come join us this fall in the high Andes!
