CABEZA DE CONDOR CRHE 09

The Cordillera Real of the Andes (mountain range) has as one of its mountains the mystical Condoriri which reaches a height of 5.650 meters. This mountain is considered by the inhabitants of the region as its protector since according to them it controls the rains, snows, draughts and the flora and fauna of the region as well.
This beautiful mountain has the form of a condor with open wings ready to fly and according to legend this mountain was the region of giant and fierce condors which carried away children from nearby villages in their claws to teach them and turn them into condor-men who sowed terror and death in their villages.
It has the Condoriri name (Condor Head) because looking at it from a great distance it seems like Condor with wings spread. It consists of 13 major peaks of over 5000m, and it’s ideal for climbers off every level. Within this range we have The Condor’s Head, Condoriri, Pequeño Alpamayo, Wyoming, Ala Izquierda, Ala Derecha, Ilusion, Ilusioncita, Tarija, Pirámide Blanca y Aguja Negra.

The highest peak here reaches 5.650 m. and at its feet we find the lagoon Tuni Condoriri, which provides water to the cities of El Alto and La Paz.
