Huayna Potosi is an iconic peak of the Cordillera Real mountain range and the sacred mountain of the city of El Alto. On this full-day expedition, you’ll head up and out of La Paz, passing through the fascinating urban landscapes of the city and El Alto before leaving the metropolis. Once out of the city, we’ll arrive at the trekking start point located at 4780 m./15682 ft. in the Huayna Potosi Refuge, used by trekkers as a starting point for summiting the mountain. From the refuge, we’ll set out on a two to three-hour trek to the Base Camp at 5100 m./ 16732 ft. where we’ll enjoy the beautiful landscape before returning by the same route to our transport and heading back to the city. Fantastic!
