Huayna potosi 6088m. 2 day Climb

Huayna Potosi is Bolivia’s most popular major peak in the Cordillera Real. Located at just 32 km from the city of La Paz, Huayna Potosi is known for its ease of access and imposing beauty as well as the fact that it is 88 meters over the magic 6000 meter figure. Huayna Potosi can be climbed by beginners with a competent guide and technical equipment. Beginners yes, but fit beginners; it’s quite steep toward the end and it’s a tough climb, but well worth the effort!

  • Day 1

    We will meet at our office at 9:00 AM and then travel on our private transport to the base camp of Huayna Potosi, located at 4700 meters.

    We will have lunch at the base camp, pack our backpacks with all of our technical climbing equipment and personal items, and then hike for 2 hours to our high camp, located at 5170 meters. Upon arrival at our high camp we will have hot drinks, snacks and dinner and go to bed around 6:00 PM.

    For all of our activities on this day, we will dress in traditional hiking clothing.

    Day 2

    Around 1:00 AM we will begin the ascent. We will have short breaks to rest and eat chocolates and drink water during the ascent.

    We plan to arrive at the summit around sunrise in order to appreciate the wonderful view of the highlands, the surrounding Cordillera Real, Lake Titicaca, and the ever unique sunrise itself.

    Our descent to high camp will take 2 - 3 hours and upon arrival we will have vegetable soup and hot drinks. At the high camp we will re-pack our backpacks and make the 1 hour descent to base camp.

    We usually arrive at our office in La Paz around 1:30 PM.
