    Departure from La Paz on a vehicle to Cordillera Real and Lake Khotia (4570 m.a.s.l). We start slowly the hike toward the Andean slopes. Later, Lake Titicaca could be seen at the left. The path leads zigzag-fashion down to arrive at Quebrador, near Ajwani lagoon.

  • Day 2:
    Quebrador Ajwani lagoon Sista帽a Jurikhota lagoon

    We start ascending between ravines and lagoons to the Milluni summit (4030 m.a.s.l.), where we have an impressive panoramic view of all the Cordillera Real. The Sajama volcano could be seen in the background of the high plateau. The path is winding but appealing until we arrive at Sista帽a lagoon, where we take a lunch break. In this point, the path starts ascending toward the summit. We arrive at Jurikhota lagoon, beautiful and isolated, surrounded by snowcapped mountains.

  • Day 3:
    Jurikhota Glaciar lagoon Chiarckhota lagoon Condoriri

    The ascent starts fast between big rocks and bends until we arrive at the edge of a frozen lagoon. Mount Condoriri now could be seen.

We go down through a narrow path to Chiarkhota lagoon.

  • Day 4:
    Chiarkhota Ligvi帽osa 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. The rocky soil triturated by the wind looks like sand. We go down slowly to soon ascend again toward a pass until we arrive at Ligvi帽osa lagoon.

  • Day 5:
    Ligvi帽osa lagoon Botijlaca La Paz

    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.
