Our Bolivia team had the ultimate acclimatization day today, with a boat trip and gorgeous hiking on the famous Isla del Sol (Sun Island) in Lake Titicaca. It’s a fun trip, with some nice trails and interesting Inca ruins to explore. According to the Inca legends, this island was the birthplace of the Sun God!
Now they have returned back to Copacabana for the night. After two nights at 11,000 feet in La Paz and two nights at 12,500 feet at Lake Titicaca, the acclimatization is starting to kick in. Roberto reports that the team is feeling good and looking forward to going to the mountains.
Tomorrow they will load up and move to Tambo Condoriri (about 14,000 feet) for more acclimatization hiking, and then the next day they go to the Condoriri Base Camp (over 15,000 feet). It’s all money in the bank for their acclimatization.
