EXPLORING CHEAROCO

Juanito, in the valley of Kellhuani.

Chearoco the mountain, like the Chachacomani are two giants that are forgotten even by the local climbers, this is due to the several days it takes to reach their base camp.

With Gregory found a more accessible route for Chachacomani, now in company with Juanito, my son found another route similar to Chearoco and I think we find it, you can reach from La Paz in the day to their base of this mountain, Jancko Khota.

The approach route is in good condition, the route from the city of La Paz is approximately 3 hours to stay Kellhuani (4599 m.).

In the approach pass by different populations, among the most important are Penas, Coromata and Chachacomani, one of the populations is Soraporko in its lagoon are different birds, one of these species is the “pink flamengo, is novel to find these birds in this area, they were usually located in the Laguna Colorada in Sud Lipez. (Salar de Uyni).

From Kellhuani you can have a quick approach to the Laguna Jankho Khota and a second day to a high camp, by the previous route to reach high camp takes several days.

In this new route can be seen the great mountains of the Cordillera as Ancohuma massif, La Calzada, and Chachacomani Chearoco; also other mountains can be seen as the Patapatani lower altitude, the Jiska or Huayna Patapani, the Sentinel, Pico Kellhuani, and others are not known yet.

In our journey in the car we stopped

to watch the flamingos that were

in the lagoon nearthe road.
