Bolivia Illimani • Pequeño Alpamayo • Huayna Potosi • Parinacota • Sajama

IMG Bolivia 2023 Itinerary

Our expedition begins with training days in the Condoriri area of the Cordillera Real Mountains culminating with a climb of Pequeño Alpamayo (17,482'). Then we head over to Huayna Potosi (19,974') which is one of the Classic Bolivian peaks. These are excellent climbs, requiring a variety of snow and ice climbing skills. If you have the time, take advantage of your acclimatization by adding the higher and steeper Illimani (21,200'). For those interested in climbing Parinacota and/or Sajama, we can work with you on these mountains as well in a Custom Program arrangement.
