CORDILLERA REAL TREK

PROGRAM 5 DAYS / 4 NIGHTS

 Day 1: La Paz - Laguna Khotia  - Laguna Ajwani

Departure from the hotel in the morning  in our private vehicle in the direction of the Cordillera Real 3-hour trip and Laguna Kothia, the start of our trek (4470 m).

We meet our team of muleteers and start hiking on the right side of the lake, on the Southwest slopes of the Cordillera. We clear the first pass (Paso Contador, (4760 m) before crossing a swampy area, near Laguna Surakhota. Alter about a 4-hour walk; we arrive at the Laguna Ajwani (“lagoon of the birds”, 4720 m).

Hiking time: 4 to 5hrs.

Day 2: Laguna Ajwani - Laguna Jurikhota

We start by following the hillside, clear a first pass at an altitude of (4920m) meters (Paso Milluni), then we take our time to reach Laguna Sistaña (4660 m).

In the afternoon we ascend to a second pass (Paso Janchallani,  ( 4900 m), before our last descent of the day towards Laguna Jurikhota ( 4700 m.a.s.l.).

Hiking time: 5 to 6hrs.

Day 3: Laguna Jurikhota -  Austria Pick -  Laguna Chiarkhota

From Laguna Jurikhota we begin by ascending up a steep slope to reach Laguna

Congelada, (two glaciers literally fall into its icy waters), a jewel nested at an altitude of 4900 meters at the foot of El Condoriri (5650 m).

From there we keep climbing to a second pass Paso Austria (5200 m) before descending on the other side towards El Condoriri and El PequeñoAlpamayo base camp, at the edge of Laguna Chiarkhota (4670 m).

Hiking time: 6 to7hrs.

Day 4: Laguna Chiarkhota - Carmen Pamapa

We leave the Condoriri behind us, pass at the base of the Black Needle and eventually reach the Jallayko Pass (5025 m). We then drop into the very beautiful and steep

Jistaña Valley, before ascending Tillipata Pass (5000 m). The spectacular scenery over the myriad of lagunas down below is ample reward for our efforts. Later on, another downhill takes us to Laguna WichuKhota, where we set up our camp, at the foot of Maria Lloco( 5522 m).
