It belongs to the central section of the Cordillera Real. New road access to this mountain may increase interest and activity in this isolated region. Jankho Laya has experienced marked glacier retreat in recent years. There are few current maps of the region. The trip must be done with a 4WD from La Paz for 3 and half hours. Take the road to Lake Titicaca. At the village of Penas, take the direction of the Hichukhota Valley, in front of the Cordillera.  
The track skirts numerous lagoons, the first one being Khara Khota lagoon. The itinerary, which is impressive and beautiful, eventually reaches the upper part of the valley.
