Itinerary

Day 1

We’ll travel from La Paz to Alto Cruz Pampa (14,600 ft./4450 m), our point of departure to the base camp of our second objective, Chachacomani. Today’s trek is around three hours following an impressive glacial valley to its terminus, where we will set up camp. Donkeys will transport our equipment and food. Overnight at Chachacomani Base Camp (14,665 ft./4470 m).

Day 2

The move from base camp to high camp is a hike of about three to four hours. Donkeys will carry our equipment and food until the last steep rocky section where porters will finish the carry. We will camp at the bouldery base of the glacier and the upper mountain will remain hidden behind the ice wall of the glacier terminus. Overnight at Chachacomani High Camp (16,831 ft./5130 m).

Day 3

We’ll attempt the summit of Chachacomani (19,928 ft./6074 m). Relatively recently opened to tourism, Chachacomani rises from the center of the Cordillera Real and is easily notable from afar for its massive glacial mass. We will traverse across this glacier, gradually drawing closer to the main summit structure, where the final ascent will require steeper climbing to navigate the bergschrund before we reach the final tiny exposed summit pyramid. The view from the summit spans the barren altiplano, neighboring imposing Chearoco and the Cordillera Real, and across the subtropics to the Amazon Basin. Overnight at Chachacomani Base Camp (14,665 ft./4470 m).

Day 4

We’ll retrace our steps from the Chachacomani Base Camp to Alto Cruz Pampa and return to La Paz. Overnight at hotel in La Paz (11,810 ft./3600 m).
