The Huayna Potosi is the most frequently climbed mountain of the 6.000m mountains in the Cordillera Real region. This is due to its easy access and non-technical characteristics. The normal route is the preferred option for most mountain climbers, who take on this challenge.

You need to be acclimatized before you go on this tour, since the high camp (lodge) it is located at 5000m.

Day 1: La Paz –  Base Camp – High camp

An early departure from La Paz brings us straight up to the heights. Along our trip we will observe Milluni, a ghost village. Once we arrive to base camp we will have our lunch, and after a break, we start our ascent to “Campo Alto”, situated at 5000 m. The route is well marked and leads to an evident moraine edge where we will find our lodge at 5000m. 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 top, on the following day.

Day 2: Attempt to reach the top – Return to Base Camp and La Paz

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 top 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 in 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.
