Trekking: Condoriri Mountain Group (2 days, from La Paz)

The Condoriri massif is one of the most beautiful and imposing mountain groups in Bolivia, located in the royal Mountain Range (Cordillera Real), with altitudes of over 5,000 meters. The glaciated massif includes 13 peaks that form an impressive circle, complemented with natural mountain lakes of crystal-clear water. The shape of Condoriri mountain resembles a condor with tense wings. The trekking tour described here leads through one of the most beautiful Andean areas in Bolivia, past picturesque mountain lakes to the base of the ice-covered Condoriri group.

First Day: Drive from La Paz, Trekking Chaca Pampa (3600 m) – Laguna Liviñosa (4260 m)

Second Day: Trekking Laguna Liviñosa – Laguna Chiar Khota (4650 m)

From the mountain lake you first cross a pass (4920 m) before descending a bit into the valley. Another ascent leads you to the Condoriri Pass (5020 m), from where you have a breathtaking view over the rugged and snowy peaks of the entire Condoriri massif. The group's impressive main summit, the 5648 m high Cabeza de Condor (head of the condor) immediately catches your eye. Descent to the Laguna Chiar Khota, which is picturesquely located at the foot of the massif and is an ideal starting point for the summit tour on the following day.

Third Day: Ascent of Pico Austria (5321m), return to La Paz

Ascent of Pico Austria (5321 m). Located in front of the highest peaks of the Condoriri group, the Cerro Austria looks impressive from a distance and it’s hard to believe that this rugged looking rock formation of over 5300 meters can be climbed without difficulty on easy paths. From the camp, you ascend to a small saddle on a path across expansive scree and pastures. Enjoy the view of the huge ice sheets below the Condoriri massif and the formidable ice wall of Ala Izquierda. You continue to climb the ridge through steep debris fields. After about 3 hours you reach the summit and enjoy a fantastic view of the numerous lakes in the side valleys and over the entire Cordillera Real. On clear days, the view even extends to the shimmering Lake Titicaca far away. The descent follows the same route as the ascent. From the tent camp at Laguna Chiar Khota, you descend further to Rinconada, where the vehicle is waiting for the return trip to La Paz. (Walking time about 6h, 670m ↑, 920 ↓).
