The Condoriri National Park displays a great natural potential. Beautifully preserved, it is tucked away in the mountains dotted with crystal clear mountain lakes, a product of the constant thawing of the glaciers. Observe stunning ice stalactites forming their unique shapes down cascading waterfalls.

As you ascend the mountain chains around La Paz, the Andean landscape appears to become even more brilliant due to the presence of numerous lakes of various colors. In its frigid waters live trout of great sizes that can easily be fished with simple equipment.

The surroundings are very interesting because it ascends completely solitary mountains; the complete silence of the mountains is only disturbed when passing llamas break up the ice underneath their hooves, creating small trickles that eventually wind their way down to Lake Titicaca. From these altitudes you can observe the silvery shimmer of light reflected by the world’s highest navigable lake, while trekking in the company of numerous llamas, the occasional alpaca (they are shy) and many smaller animals such as chinchillas, lizards, ibises and gulls.

After a short descent we approach the Pequeño Alpamayo, a 80metros of technical climbing with a slope of 55 ° to reach its peak await us, and after another 2 hours we will attempt to reach its summit, after this effort, we will get back  to base camp, along the same route.
