Mankilisani part of the Cordillera Real, it may become Bolivia’s next ski slope now that the previous ski area Chacaltaya has lost its glaciers due to global warming. 
You will be picked up early morning around 8am from your hotel and we start the drive to La Cumbre approximately 1 hour away. Here we can see the Cordillera Real Mountain range and we will be at an altitude of around 4.700m. The first section of the climb will be rocky moraine and will take about 1 hour to complete after which we will put on our crampons for the ice section. Once on the ice there is the opportunity for those with some experience to try an 80 degree slope of ice (this can be avoided though for beginners). We will continue to climb up to a small ridge which we follow to the summit of 5.392m. The summit over’s great views of the surrounding mountains including nearby Huayna Potosi. After a break to take in the views and rest a little we will start our descent following the same route down. It is a day excursion.
