Climbing Pico Austria - Pequeño Alpamayo (4 days)
Pico Austria – Little Alpamayo (5.425m)
Little Alpamayo, this peak is impressive, beautiful and justifiably popular in the area. From base camp, you can only see the top of the summit, but the view of the mountain from Pico Tarija is impressive. The pyramid of snow and rock seems much more difficult to climb than it is and the top of the top is one of the most aesthetic lines in Bolivia.
