Full description
Your experience kicks off from San Pedro Square at 8:00AM. From there, depart for the summit, which is located about an hour away from La Paz. Upon your arrival to the summit, your first stop is to the Estrellani Lagoon - 4,600 meters above sea level. Following a small break, begin your walk whilst contemplating the landscape of the mountain range along the way. As you travel, encounter high-Andean flora and fauna as you make your way to the Patalarama Lagoon and the new Pampalarama Dam. By approximately noon you reach the highest point of 4,938 meters, passing by the snowy Charquini along the way. Whilst in Charquini, enjoy an outdoor lunch before making your way back to La Paz. Your tour later concludes with your arrival back to the city at approximately 4:00PM.
