CLIMBING / MOUNTAINEERING

 

HIGH EARTH” ADVENTURE TRAVEL, invites you to the Cordillera Real de los Andes, the Cordillera Occidental Volcanic, Cordillera Apolobamba and Quimza Cruz.   The major peaks in Bolivia from the most popular to the most challenging. We will help you to get high and conquer any mountain in Bolivia. The Cordillera Real offers you plenty of possibilities for practising different activites in the mountains, with different levels of complexity, challenging your physical and mental proves.                          

Keep in mind that the oxygen level is very low at these altitudes and the climate quite rough so none of the climbs are easy!! The most visited and famous mountain is Huayna Potosi (6.088 m). We offer a range of difficulties from a basic climb, such as:  Charquini (5.392 m.)   Pico Austria o Janchallani (5.396 m.)      Pequeño Alpamayo (5.370 m)   

Technically demanding mountains for those with more experience we have Nevado Piramide (5.907m) or Pequeño Alpamayo (5.370m) in the Cordillera Real.  One of the challenging peaks around Sorata or La Paz, choosing any combination of mountains for example, Ancohuma (6.427 m) and Illimani (6.462 m). If you are looking for something different, we specialise in climbing remote peaks, such as Illampu (6356 m),Chachacomani (6.074 m.), Sajama (6.542 m.) or Akamani (5.666 m).  Whatever you want we will tailor make it for you.
Also attempt Ojos del Salado (6.893 m.) in Chile, Aconcagua (6.962 m), in Argentina, one of the 7 summits in the world and the highest peak in the Andes and even outside of the Himalayas.

We offer climbing trips from 1 to 21 days in Bolivia, Chile/Argentina. All our mountaineering tours have a professional mountain guides, all with diplomas either from the UIAGM or the AGMT of Bolivia.
