Full description
Begin the experience with hotel pickup in La Paz and then head out to Condoriri, passing the city of Al Alto, which is the fastest growing in South America. Witness the abundance of brand new, half-finished construction projects before coming to views of the beautiful Cordillera Real. After reaching the village of Palcoco, take to the dirt roads which lead up the valley toward the Condoriri range. Upon arrival at the Laguna Chira Khota, turn left and follow a trail up to the summit of the Austria Peak at 17,388 feet. After reaching the summit and marveling at views over the other mountains, head back down the valley to the vehicle which will take you back to your hotel for drop-off. The day includes a 2 to 3-hour drive, a 6 to 8-hour trek, and a boxed lunch.
