Day 1: LA PAZ – RINCONADA DEL CONDORIRI – LAGUNA CHIAR KHOTA.
Early departure from La Paz to the Rinconada del Condoriri where the vehicle leaves us. Then we continue with a short trekking, the mules help us transport all our technical equipment and finally we arrive at Laguna Chiar Khota (4,630 m), where we will install our base camp.
Day 2.- LAGUNA CHIAR KHOTA – SUMMIT CABEZA DEL CONDOR – RETURN LAGUNA CHIAR KHOTA.
This is the day we have been waiting for! We will have another alpine start, since it is a long day to reach the top of the Cabeza del Cóndor. The terrain begins in very loose rocks until we reach the ice. The ascent starts relatively smoothly until we enter an ice canyon where climbing becomes more technical. Once we reach the summit, we will return by the same route to our base camp.
Day 3.- LAGUNA CHIAR KHOTA – RINCONADA DE CONDORIRI – RETURN TO LA PAZ.
After breakfast, we prepare our luggage and begin the descent to Rinconada del Condoriri where our vehicle will be waiting for us to take us back to La Paz.
