Bag a 6,000m+ peak, high in the Andes.
Stunning mountain views over beautiful Bolivia.
Brilliant challenge and fantastic addition to any trekking trip.
Our experienced, professional and qualified guides ensure safety and best summit chance.
Thanks to Osvaldo, Sergio and Maria we got to the top safely and felt that our needs were the highest priority at all times. I have to say, it was an utter pleasure to have Osvaldo and his team look after us.
The highlight for us was summiting Huayna as the sun broke across the Cordillera Real. Casting a triangular shadow to the West stretching out to Lake Titicaca. The descent was also magical, seeing the terrain we'd hiked in the dark in all is spectacular icy glory.
Osvaldo is a credit to his profession. Our every need was catered for and the organisation was exemplary. He even brought along extra clothing to make sure we were comfortable. It was his fastidious attention to our and other hikers needs that stood out.

Thanks to Osvaldo, Sergio and Maria we got to the top of Huayna Potosi safely and felt that our needs were the highest priority at all times. It was clear that this is not the case with other guides. Some were rude to their guests in front of us.
Highlight - Summiting Huyana as the sun broke across the Cordillera Real. Casting a triangular shadow to the west stretching out to Lake Titicaca. The descent was also magical, seeing the terrain we'd hiked in the dark in all is spectacular icy glory. In particular stopping to peer deep into a 40m deep crevasse.
