Our guide, Esteban, wasn't sympathic at all and was really pessimistic about our chances to succeed since the begining. All the people who've succeed I met told me that was in big part thanks to their guide who encouraged them at the difficults moments (where you necessarily pass through) and help them to reach the top, what Esteban didn't do...

I went on the 3 days climbing of the Huayna Potosi with the "All Transports" agency. I had a great experience with them. The guides are nice, competents and certified. Prices are within average with the other agencies and they accepted to include some extra equipment with no extra cost (about 900 BS, depending on your bargain skills). The equipment... More

It really is tough but no certain skills are required. Very important: either bring your own sleeping bag or make sure the company gives you a proper one, otherwise you will freeze all night. So if you like hiking, give it a try!

My girlfriend and I traveled to La Paz in late May to visit family. We took a number of side trips during our two week stay, but nothing can compare to the thrill of climbing a nearly 20,000 ft. snow-capped peak just outside of the city. We did our research well in advance of our trip, and decided to book... More

We Climb this peak with Climbing South America amd in overall they were fine. Our guide was professional, the food was ok as well and the preparations all proper. We had an incident though with our first guide... He was Drunk. The Aymara new year was the night before and I guess that was the problem. The company managed this... More

I would definitely recommend Bolivian Mountain Guides for the Huayna Potosi climb or any treks in the Cordillera Real. They are definitely way more expensive than the other agencies you will find on Sagarnaga, but I believe they have reason to charge more. I had the same guide for both the climb and another trek in the Cordillera, and he... More

I went for a 5 days hike in the mountains and I greatly enjoyed it. This is a couple of hours drive from La Paz.
