ILLIMANI 6462 MTRS.

ILLIMANI 6462 mtrs.

Without a doubt, this is a great mountain with an extensive history behind it. From the year 1877 to the present day, its flanks and summits have been the site of innumerable great adventures.
Its strategic position with respect to La Paz has permitted the city to demonstrate to the world that it is a city with exceptional characteristics; thus, Illimani is the "Symbol of La Paz".
It has three main summits of which the south peak, called "Laikha Kollu" (the Enchanted mountain) is the highest at 6.490 m. above sea level.
In spite of being so popular, Illimani is not climbed often, and only those very few who have managed to get to the summit have had the opportunity to view La Paz city from quite a different angle.
We are lucky to be able to feel what goes on in the minds of poets and dreamers. For this reason, we invite you to come with us and share unforgettable experiences on...the Illimani routes.
ASCENT (SOUTH PEAK) (5 DAYS)
1. day. BASE CAMP.- Departure by car to Pinaya village. (4 hour journey; 90 kms.). A 3 hour walk leads us to base camp at 4.500 m. Mules will carry our equipment.
2. day. NIDO DE CONDORES.- Due to crumbly and slippery moraines, we'll have a hard and slow trek. It's a short way for the 5 hour walk to Nido de Cóndores at 5.550 m.; this camping place above the beginning of the glacier looks like a nest perched above steep walls which fall away on all sides. Porters will help with our equipment.
3. day. SUMMIT.- We start at 05:00 following a long and steep edge which gives way to a high flat area where we attack a huge dome which is quite difficult due to the ice conditions. After finishing the dome it takes 1 hour to reach the top by an easy field. 7 hours climb.
4. day. RETURN TO BASE CAMP.- 3 hour descent. Free afternoon.
5. day. RETURN TO LA PAZ.- We come back to Cohoni to meet our car. Picnic in Pinaya before return trip to La Paz.
