Chacaltaya (5.350 m.) is a a mountain in the Cordillera Real that used to be the highest ski resort on earth before the glacier melted. It still offers great views of the Cordillera Real.


The two-hour trip passes through El Alto and the Altiplano, where we begin to see the Andean landscape and the sierras; we arrive at the ski refuge of Chacaltaya (5260 m) and we warm up with a coca tea and contemplate the landscape of the Cordillera Real.

From the refuge we will climb to the first peak of Chacaltaya (5350 m) and see what was once the highest ski area in the world. Unfortunately, now the glacier has completely disappeared. There is a second peak that we head to before making a descent to the left side and into the valley of the Milluni and Charquini.

All this time we will be walking towards the majestic figure of the Huayna Potosí hill at 6088m, we descend near the Charquini hill, we will walk along the path to the Zongo pass where there are several shelters where we will rest and we will meet our transport that will take us back.
