Eduardo Mamani Quispe – UIAGM Guide / IFMGA.
I have been guiding professionally for more than 27 years, I passed safety and rescue courses in the sister Republic of Peru with Swiss instructors, my training culminates with the French school of ENSA (National School of Sky and Mountaineering) International certification UIAGM / IFMGA. I conquered the summit of Bolivar, Humboldt and others in Venezuela; the summits of Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador, Alpamayo and Huascaran in Peru; I also reached the summit of Aconcagua (6954 m) twice the same day from the Base Camp (Plaza de Mulas) in Argentina.
My knowledge of the Cordillera Real is very extensive, to the point that I helped the Instituto Geográfico Militar to elaborate their map of the Cordillera Real (the only official map of the area). At the time I was an active member of the Bolivian Andean Club.
I was also hired by the President of Bolivia (at that time) -Jorge Quiroga- to climb Huayna Potosí and by many embassy delegations. I organized the tour of MALIA OBAMA daughter of BARACK OBAMA at that time was still the President of the United States of America, whose route was through the Cordillera Real of Bolivia.

Miss Julia Catunta Janco- Tour Guide
But this is not the reason to forget about him, on the contrary to remember the teachings he left behind. Gregorio has been a professional mountain guide for the last 35 years and was considered in Bolivia as one of the few local experts on extreme routes.
He has climbed throughout the Andes in Bolivia, including Illampu, Ancohuma, Chearoco, Chachacomani, Negruni, Condoriri, Huayna Potosi, Mururata, and Illimani, as well as the Apolobamba and Sajama mountain ranges, the highest mountain in Bolivia.
The current routes in the mountains are those that Gregorio traveled and many of them were made by him or were the modification that he made.
