Huayna Potosi 3 Day Trek

Day 1

We leave La Paz in the morning, before driving to the Zongo Pass base camp, located at almost 15,500 feet above sea level.

After a pleasant journey of one hour and a half, we arrive at our destination. Then we trek to the glacier, where the guide will give us the necessary instructions for our ascent of the Huayna Potosi mountain. The first stage of this amazing trekking route will last about two and a half hours. In the evening, we will rest while enjoying dinner under the stars in the tranquility of the mountainside.

Day 2

Early in the morning, after breakfast, we will start our second day of the circuit on the Huayna Potosi mountain with a three-hour trekking route. Our destination will be a camp at a higher altitude, some 17,000 feet above sea level. Along the route, we will make several stops to rest and marvel at the wonderful panoramic views of the Andes and the Bolivian altiplano beneath us. When we arrive at the camp, we will have a tasty dinner, relax, and go to bed early so that we are fully prepared to face the third and last day of mountaineering.

Day 3

We will get up before dawn to enjoy a unique walk on the glacier which takes on an otherworldly appearance under the stars. After a long hike, we finally reach the summit of the iconic Huayna Potosi mountain. From there, if the weather is good, we will witness some of the principle natural wonders of Bolivia: Mount Sajama, the Royal Range, and even Lake Titicaca.

After resting and relaxing at the top of Huayna Potosi, we will begin the descent to the camp, where we enjoy a delicious traditional meal to replenish our strength. In the afternoon, we will continue to Zongo Pass, where we take the private vehicle back to La Paz.
