Huayna Potosi High Camp 5200 m

Chacaltaya, commonly referred to as the “highest ski resort in the world,” is located a short distance from La Paz.  For those of you in search of fresh powder, don’t get your hopes up just yet as the slope is no longer skiable due to the receding glacier (6-10m a year). However, at 5,300m, Chacaltaya boasts some of the most stunning views of the Cordillera Real, the city of La Paz and the seemingly endless altiplano. The best part is that you only have to ascend 200m by foot to reach the summit.

Departure in the morning toward Huayna Potosí Base Camp (2 hrs by car). We hike up to the old glacier (a stunning ice formation) on an easy path that goes from 4700m up to 4950m. If you’re feeling fine with the extreme altitude, you’ll have the option to hike up to High Camp at a dizzying 5,200m (2hr hike). Return to La Paz.
