This adventurous and stunning trekking challenge starts in La Paz, Bolivia’s administrative centre and the highest capital city in the world! La Paz at 3300m is no ordinary city, lying at the bottom of a steep canyon and ringed by snow-capped mountains, it takes your breath away – literally! After a couple of days acclimatizing, we will transfer to the start of our trek in the pretty little town of Copacabana, on the shores of Lake Titicaca.
This beautiful, turquoise blue, fresh water lake is the most sacred body of water in the Inca Empire and now the natural separation between Peru and Bolivia. We will spend two days trekking and acclimatizing in this unique environment. Once acclimatized, we transfer to the snow covered peaks of Cordillera Real mountain range, believed to be home of the spirits of Aymara Indian ancestors. Our Bolivian challenge culminates in summiting Cerro Blanca at 5370m, one of 13 peaks in the range above 5100m, where we will have spectacular close-up views of glaciated peaks and stunning views stretching across to Lake Titicica and into Peru.
Best time of year: April to November
Number of days: 11
