Dare to ascend to 5300m above sea level for a stunning view of the Cordillera Real from one of the best-known peaks of the Tuni Condoriri Massif, the Pico Austria. No special equipment is required, just good hiking boots, warm, layered clothing, sun, wind and rain protection, and a passion for high mountain landscapes. We reach the trekking starting point (4300m) after a 1.5 hour journey from La Paz, passing through El Alto and the vast Altiplano. As we begin to walk, the trail rises slowly to the beautiful, turquoise Chiar Khota Lake (4900m), at the base of enormous glaciated peaks, from the lake we start the hike up Pico Austria.
