Climbing Chachacomani (4 days)
Chachacomani (6.100 m.)
A new route for Bolivia! This approach to this imposing peak in the middle of the Cordillera Real has only recently been explored in 2010 by our very own guides. It is certainly a challenging route, but we will have the valleys and routes to ourselves, and have the honour of being known as trailblazers. It also has the advantage of being a shorter expedition to the other more common ascent of the peak, being on the west side of the range.
This new route is more accessible and demands less time. The views on the approaching and from the summit are fantastic. Be one of the few conquering this 6,100 m. summit by this route.
Day 1.- LA PAZ – ALTO CRUZ PAMPA – BASE CAMP.
Depart from La Paz towards Lake Titicaca and the town of Copacabana until we reach a detour which takes us through the village of Peñas. Reaching the end of the road, we continue on foot for approx 3 hours until we reach the Jackosin camp (4,650m).
Day 2.- BASE CAMP – HIGH CAMP DE CHACHACOMANI.
Continuing our approach to the glacier, we reach our high camp on the edge of the ice (5,200m).
Day 3.- BASE CAMP – CHACHACOMANI SUMMIT – HIGH CAMP.
Summit of Chachacomani. Crossing a large glacial plain around the base of the Centinela peak, we make our way to the east summit of Chachacomani. Return via the same route to our high camp.
Day 4.- BASE CAMP – CUMBRE CHACHACOMANI – HIGH CAMP.
Today we make our way past basecamp and onto the road head, where our vehicle will be waiting to take us to La Paz.
