IMG guide Greg Vernovage called today to report the team had successfully made their way out of the Cordillera Real (the mountains to the east of Lake Titicaca) and were now on their way south to Sajama (21463 ft / 6542 m), the highest peak in Bolivia. To get there the team needs to drive across the Altiplano (the Bolivian high altitude plain) to the Sajama National Park, very near the border with Chile and Peru. After arrival, they will hike up to the Base Camp this afternoon (and go to the high camp the following day). So far, so good!
