The next day a vehicle approach to the top of the Acotango mountain, in our ascent we found many penitents which made our ascension difficult.

Much higher the conditions were better, after 4 hours we arrived at the Summit. Our return was largely the same route but the final part had to change it avoiding entering the area of the penitents.

A nice climb with success. Richard at the Acotango Summit.

Richard van der Wal says:
I climbed Pico Austria and mount Acotango with BMG a little over a week ago. I am 51, in good shape, but have very little experience when it comes to hiking and climbing, especially at these heigths. Thanks to Eduardo, owner of BMG who accompanied me on these trips, I succeeded in reaching both summits!
Eduardo is very knowledgeable, reliable and pleasant. He was even so kind to pick me up from El Alto Airport at 1.30 AM, so I didn’t have to spend the night there! He also arranged for additional equipment at no extra cost in order to climb mount Acotango.
Based on my experiences I highly recommend BMG/Eduardo!
