CHACHACOMANI (6074 m.a.s.l)
The Chachacomani (6074 m.a.s.l.) and the Chearoco (6127 m.a.s.l) form a solid massif. Located in the center of the Cordillera Real, these giants mountains are waiting to be climbed. The Chearoco offers a more adventurous terrain as it is less popular. While the Chachacomani is becoming more and more popular this mountain remains as a secluded area.
Leaving the hotel in a private car for a trip through the altiplano. We arrive at the Alto Cruz Pampa village where we prepare our trail with the mule drivers. A trek deep in the valley will take us to base camp.
After breakfast we’ll take a walk through an almost virgin piece of land as this mountain has only recently become crowded. Through a clear path between plains and slopes, we’ll reach high camp. This hike will be enough for one day. Settling camp and resting.
We’ll start our ascent at 02:00 am. Unlike others in the Cordillera Real, this mountain presents in the first part an extensive trail on a glacier rather easy to follow. In our attempt to reach the summit we’ll climb through the small cracks and slopes of the mountain. We’ll go through the north edge of the mountain and climb a 40-degree slope during 40 meters allowing us to reach this beautiful summit. Descent down the following the same track to reach base camp.
At 08:00 am we’ll hike to the village of “alto Cruz Pampa” where we’ll have lunch and return to La Paz by private car.
