Bolivia Mountaineering School

Learn new skills and climb to over 21,000 feet / 6,400 meters

This expe­di­tion in the Cordillera Real, the Roy­al Range, offers some of the finest moun­taineer­ing objec­tives for begin­ner climbers look­ing at the Andes of South Amer­i­ca. With com­pre­hen­sive instruc­tion and guid­ed ascents of Huay­na Poto­si and Illi­mani you’ll find one of the best pos­si­ble intro­duc­tions to high alti­tude climb­ing, all set amidst a fas­ci­nat­ing cul­tur­al back­drop. For those with lim­it­ed expe­ri­ence, this trip com­bines abun­dant learn­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties with prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tion of skills on three high alti­tude peaks and is one of our most reward­ing South Amer­i­can adventures.
