Tour Overview

Condoriri is considered to be one of the most beautiful peaks in Bolivia and quite possibly in the entire Andes. Condoriri's three peaks appear to be a condor lifting its wings before takeoff. The area which serves as basecamp, was first explored by the British mountaineer Sir Martin Conway who said that as night fell "clouds" of condors appeared overhead. Although not as numerous today, it is still possible to see one or two condors circling high above the Bolivian Mountains.

    Departure 9:00 am, 10:30 arrival to Plaza de Llamas 4,500 m (14,760 ft). We meet our arriero and his llamas, with the animals carrying the bulk of our gear, we make an easy-paced ascent to our base camp at 4,600 m (15,100 ft). The trek takes us through some beautiful valley landscapes, and our camp provides excellent views of the many surrounding mountains and puts us in position to make the ascents. We set up camp near a lake below the magnificently sculptured white tower of Condoriri.
  • Day 2

    We proceed to Condoriri with moderately steep terrain of snow and ice and wonderful exposure from the narrow airy summit. It is a highly memorable and challenging climb for even the most seasoned alpinist. From the summit, we have breathtaking views of the Amazon Basin, the barren Altiplano, and the impressive Cordillera Real. Two hrs hike to Plaza de Llamas and drive to La Paz.
