Huayna Potosí (3 days)

Huayna Potosí (6,088 meters or 19,974 feet) is one of the most beautiful mountains in the Cordillera Real of Bolivia, with perpetual glaciers and an impressive view, it is visible from La Paz.

You will find a lot of information that indicates the ease of climbing, but be careful, "it is popular", but any escalation involves risks and whenever we understand that the acclimatization process is important, we will achieve our goals.

This mountain does not imply much technical level, it is more, it is one of the most accessible mountains in Bolivia due to its infrastructure since there are pre-established base camps and high fields.
