5d4n Condoriri - Austria - Tarija - Pequeño Alpamayo

The Condoriri massif is a cluster of thirteen mountains that rise over 5.000m, forming a circle of colors and beauty. Its name given is based on its similarity to a condor with outstretched wings.

This program is just great for mountain enthusiasts and for those looking for a good acclimatization before the attempt of climbing other mountains considered as more technically difficult in the Andes range.

In this climbing adventure you will reach the top of Pico Austria 5340m and two snow caped mountains in the region, Mt. Ilusión 5.350m; Mt Pequeño Alpamayo. We will have as a camping base the Chiarkhota Lagon with 4.600. Our expert U.I.A.G.M mountain guides will assist you at all times.

Day 1: La Paz – Plaza de llamas – Chiarkhota lake

We pick you up from your hotel, where there will be an approximately two hour drive to Lake Tuni. Our muleteers and mules will be waiting for us and help us carrying most of the equipment to our base camp area near the shores of Chiarkhota lake. In the afternoon there will be time to enjoy the beautiful landscape of the area.

2 hours driving, 3 hours trekking.

Meals included: lunch and dinner

Night accommodation: tents or mountain lodge

Day 2: Austria Peak

From our camping site, we’ll exit the valley of Condoriri. From here it will take us about 1 and a half to 2 hours to make it to Austria Peak 5340m making it a 3 hour climb overall - steadily climbing in a switchback pattern until we reach the ridge which will take us to the top. Once at the top, you’ll be treated to striking views of peaks of Condoriri Range. In the left flank of Condoriri Peak with its glacier, you’ll find that the hike is not difficult but an excellent trekking for acclimatizing prior to tackling other peaks. The descent shouldn’t be any more than 3 hours back to our camping site.

Meals included: breakfast, picnic and dinner

Night accommodation: tents or mountain lodge

Day 3: Mt. Ilusión

Get ready for an early start, in order to reach the summit of Mt. Ilusion (5,350m). It is not a high climb but the approach gives us the opportunity to practice different skills (eg. glacial traverse) and helps in our preparation for the Pequeño Alpamayo the following day. The climbing will take 4 hours, plus 3 hours to return down to our camping site.

Meals included: breakfast, picnic and dinner

Night accommodation: tents or mountain lodge

Day 4: Pequeño Alpamayo

We will have a long day to reach the top of Mount Alpamayo, at 5400m. The beginning of the day is approximately 4 hours, until we enter the west side of the face where the climbing becomes more technical and will take us approximately 2 to 3 hours. We will ascend without technical difficulty until the pass Tarija 5300m, and then a technical wall of  80 meters with 55º allows us to pass and reach the top. Upon the attempt reach the top, we return the same way 4 hours down to our camp site.

Meals included: breakfast, picnic and dinner.

Accommodation night: tents or mountain lodge
