HUAYNA POTOSI CRHE 04
HUAYNA POTOSI CRHE 05

This snow covered mountain meaning the “Young Mountain” in Aymara, is located just at 25 km from La Paz. It is one of the most climbed mountains of the Cordillera Real thanks to its proximity and  relatively little technical normal route. In time all its fronts have been explored by people.
It offers the opportunity to climb a summit of 6,000 meters by a short and “easy” route; but it also offers beautiful and more technical routes for experienced mountaineers and climbers.
With its 6,088m, the Huayna Potosí rises in rock, snow, ice, and rips the celestial dome at the edge of the central Altiplano (highlands) just about 40 km from La Paz city.

From its summit is possible to practice Ala Delta, paragliding and skydiving above its glaciers. This mountain is separated from the Condoriri group by the Liviñosa and Zongo rivers. It is an easy climb by way of its normal route. Its highest elevation is the northern peak (6,088 m), and the southern peak reaches (6,035 m). Technically speaking, it presents a medium level difficulty and ideal for climbers with medium experience. It is one of the most preferred destinations for mountain climbers.

Huayna Potosi is the most frequented 6.000m mountain in the Cordillera Real region, due to its easy access and non technical characteristic, going through the normal route.  This is a great way to start your serious mountain climbing career!
