Itinerary:

Departing at 7:00 am, you begin with a journey through the city of La Paz, to the city of El Alto onto the Altiplano. After a little more than an hour on board of our transportation, we will break for a ceremony meant to offer thanks to the Earth—in the Andes, a spirit known as Pachamama—we will also thank the Apus, who are the spirits of the mountains, with this ceremony we look for protection to all participants of our trip; then we will continue until we reach Milluni’s abandoned graveyard at 4,450m.s.n.m which preserves very peculiar forms in its construction. Currently Milluni is a ghost town, only 34 kilometers distance from the city of La Paz, in the past  Milluni mine was one of the main tin producers almost a century ago, the mining center had about 5,000 inhabitants.

After almost two hours driving time, we will arrive to the base camp 4700 meters, then following our expert mountain guide, we will hike along a mountain path until we reach the old glacier, a place where we will practice sport climbing. Recommended experience for beginners, as it instills confidence and familiarizes the mind to the psychological aspects of high mountain sport; our guide will ensure the participants, using our high mountain equipment from overhead and above the route that we will climb. After the practice and the necessary time for unforgettable photos session, we will return to base camp and then continue by car to the city to the same point where we started the day.
