Trekking: Laguna Glaciar (4 days, from La Paz)

High altitude mountain trekking in the Cordillera Real. The starting point is Chillcani with 3500m (4-day variant of trekking), or Pampa Colani with 3150m (3-day variant of trekking), both not far from the town of Sorata. The highest point and goal of the trek is the Laguna Glaciar glacier lake at 5050 meters above sea level. The lowest point of the route is at the end of the trek in the municipality of Pampa Colani at 3150 meters above sea level. During the 4-day trek, you cross an Andean pass of 4,300 meters, as well as crossing the glacier and moraine landscape of the Ancohuma glaciers. The extended version of the trekking takes 4 days, one day longer than the standard route, with the first and the last day each requiring a 4 to 5 hour vehicle transfer between La Paz and the starting and ending point of the hike, unless a one night stay in Sorata is also planned. During the four days of trekking, approximately 36 km are covered on foot.
