2D/1N | La Paz / La Paz | From March to November
Breakfast at the hotel. Departure to the Condoriri National Park (approximately 2 hours by private vehicle). The park is part of the Cordillera Real, where the highest and sharpest peaks can be found, with their straight and long slopes. It was modeled by different glacial periods, since the quaternary period up until today. This mountain ranges from an altitude of 4500m to 6400m. In terms of landscape, we can observe swamps and other wet meadows where only some bushes pop out. Here live some aquatic birds like Larus Serranus, wild ducks « Anas and Huallatas » or the so-called “Leque Leque” (Vanellus chilensis), as well as herons. The viscaches, the Andean hare, or the condor may also perhaps be part of the show!
Breakfast at the base camp. Then, beginning of a wonderful day: hike to Austria Pic in the Condoriri National Park. Trekking within a mineral and desert landscape. Climb to reach the highest pass of the hike, at 5270m above sea level. From this beautiful pass, you will have an overview of the Mount Condor, with the lagoons produced by different glaciers in this region down below. This ascent is one of the most rewarding in terms of scenery. Lunch box along the way.
