Climbing Huayna Potosi / 2 Days FULL ITINERARY

Day 1 An early departure from La Paz brings us straight up to the heights. We start our ascent to “Campo Alto”, situated at 5000 meters. The route is well marked and leads to an evident moraine edge where we will set up our tents and after a short break we begin to check and verify our mountain gear. We will eat early and try to get some rest in order to be refreshed when we commence our climb to the summit, on the following day.

Day 2 After a very early breakfast (around midnight) we will begin heading up the glacier, aiming towards the east face and arriving at the Pala. We then continue all the way to the top arriving at the summit of Mt. Huayna Potosi (6080 meters), after about six hours of ascent. Once at the top we’ll be able to enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the Andes Mountains and the sun rising to the east. After a while we start descending arriving once again at “Campo Alto”, and then on to base camp where our vehicles will be waiting to drive us back to La Paz.
