    Chiarkhota Ligviñosa lagoon

    We leave early from the lagoon. We take the path that starts with a gentle but constant ascent. Beautiful view from this summit located at more than 5000 meters.

    We descend to the deep valleys. Vegetation becomes thicker and air warmer. We finally arrive at the village of Botijlaca (3600 m.a.s.l.), region of enjoyable and temperate climate. There, a vehicle is awaiting to drive us back to La Paz. Farewell dinner. Hotel accommodation.
