      Great experience
      Well organised, professional and safe. Food was quite good considering the remoteness of the location. For those less fit or having difficulties acclimatising, try the three day tour instead.

      Terrible and dangerous equipment!
      Terrible agency for the Death Road Tour! We were a group of 24!! people. All other agencies that we met had groups of around 6 people. Also, the equipment was soo bad. My chain went off 3 times (only once a guide was behind me to help), the breaks were lose and they didn't get to manage it to fix them because they were just broke. The suspension was stuck and didn't work in the beginning. My gloves we're way to big and super old, so i got really bad blisters on my hands and of course that hurts really bad on a mountain bike trip. Everyone just got any equipment and they didn't care if it fits or not. Many other people had flat tires and other problems. They didn't even check the bikes once. They were super old and really f***** up. I advise everyone to pay 10€ more and go to the other side of the street. Its just not fun to have a tour with such bad, old, and dangerous equipment. P.S. they offer the trip via another agency and not by themselves. I think it is called Umeno. So avoid this one as well.

      Huyana Potosi 2 day - sensational experience
      Firstly, if you are in La Paz, you should absolutely climb Huyana Potosi. It’s challenging, but immensely rewarding and the views are spectacular. Secondly, you should 100% go with Jiwaki. The prices are as reasonable as you will find without compromising on quality / safety. Every one of their guides is extremely knowledgable, friendly, patient and great fun. The whole process ran very smoothly, from pick up, to allocating equipment, to meals, to climbing to base camp, to climbing the mountain itself. Great care was taken of the climbers who couldn’t summit because of altitude sickness, but 8/10 of our group made it to the top, and without the expertise / motivation of the guides it undoubtedly would have been less. Shout out in particular to Edgar for getting me to the top!

      5 STAR SCENERY WITH A 5 STAR TOUR GUIDE
      Highly Recommend this company. Rudy was our tour guide. Super down to earth and positive vibes. Kept conversations going along the way. Always kept safety in mind. They provide a meal at the top of the mountain which was nice. The landscape was absolutely surreal in this location. Never seen anything like it. The weather was wild. Even though it was like summer at our location there were storm clouds with thunder and lightening around the mountains right next to us. It was nice to watch and listen to. The weather was warm at the bottom then became snowy and windy at the top. Overall it wasn't that cold. The weather eventually mellowed out. Pro Tip: bring lots of coca leaves and (lay-hee-a) sweetener.

      Huyana Potosi 2-day trek
      Just finished the two-day Huyana Potosi trek. It was an amazing experience and there is nothing that I would like to be changed in the future. My guide, Iban, was the best guide that I could have ever wished for.

      Huayna Potosí
      Together with Jiwaki I did the Huayna Potosí trek. It’s the most incredible trek I’ve ever done in my life. The guides (Obidio, Iván and Ramiro) were so so kind and lovely. They’re young, super experienced, love their job, and know how to handle all kinds of situations. I cannot thank Iván, my personal guide during the 3rd day going up to Huayna Potosí, enough for helping me through this extremely tough hike. So glad he pushed me through it. He was soooo patient but also strict when we had to keep on going because of safety reasons. I definitely recommend Jiwaki agency for so many reasons but especially for their great gear amazing guides!

      Well organized, beautiful, great conversation
      My friends and I did El Choro trek, 3 days 2 nights. We had so much fun! The guide, Bladimir, was awesome- he knew lots of plants and birds, and was all around fun to talk to. The porters were also awesome, and the food was delicious! The hike was intense, but they prepared us very well for it. El Choro is mostly descent on the first day, so make sure you are prepared!

      Bad experience! Transport-safety is obviosly not a topic for this company.
      We went to Mount "Pico Austria" for a day-trip today. Beautiful mountain and surrounding, really worth to go! We got picked up with an Oldtimer Dodge RAM 350 (at least 30years old). I do not have problems with Oldtimer, okay 50% of the seats were like deckchairs and not adjustable, but this is not a big deal. But on our way back we realized on the "Highway" that the driver couldn't drive straight ahead. He was fit and doing a good Job. But obviosly there was a problem with the steering. Back in the city the problem became obviosly, we got a puncture. Suprise, suprise, out of the car I realized that all tires were completly differnt and all completly worn. And another suprise we had 2 spare tires on the roof, guess how they looked like!?! Besides this the brakes squeaked as well as the suspension, but that I wouldn't call strange in Bolivia... We paid 50$/Person for this tour today with one Guide and a snack as lunch. I wouldn't call this cheap, so my expectation for a company with such recessions is a transport medium in "normal" conditions, for at least normal safety of the pessangers.

      DO NOT USE FOR DEATH ROAD !
      My bike was faulty, I informed the guide that there was a problem he said it was fine and then 2 minutes later the chain came off, got stuck in the wheel and the bike flipped. I hit my head on a rock, got a concussion, cut my knee and hip, the guide did not even ask if I was okay. They have refused to give me a refund and claim it was my fault when a guide and other bikers saw this incident, do not use this company!

      Acotango + Jiwaki = Quality
      Acotango at 6055 masl. Having spent hours doing research on this non-technical mountain it seemed to be perfect. It would offer me a two-in- one adventure; seeing Sajama National Park and doing my first peak above 6000 masl. I was not disappointed to say the least. Or, a bit disappointed because I had to abort at 5743 masl due to lack of oxygen. I just could not get any air into my poor lungs and every step from 5000 masl was a struggle. Aha, you might think because lack of 1) Physical strength 2) Acclimatisation 3) Skill/prior experience. Let me just explain that I tick all three boxes and then some: Workout on average 15-20 times per month back home for 5 years. Flew in to La Paz (3700 masl) and stayed there for 5 days to just acclimatize and also ate Diamox religously. Have done Elbrus in Russia and Damavand in Iran, both peaks at + 5600 masl. This time the mountain decided it did not want me there and as Ed Vestieurs says: ”Climbing a mountain is a return trip”. I choose to abort to be able to make it down by myself. There are no helicopters standing by for tourists/climbers where they pick you up and offer you hot chocolate and hold your hand in the Bolivian mountains. If things go wrong- good luck. The agency of my choice fell on Jiwaki. They have done an excellent job and delivered and then some. Everything on time, good service and a very professional attitude. But instead of spending more superlatives let me give you a glimpse of Jiwakis attitude: At 5743 masl I told my excellent guide William from Jiwaki that; no more- abort mission. His first reaction was not: Great I get to go home earlier. No, this hero offered to cary my backpack up the last 300 meters in elevation up to the top. That is quality. That is a committed guide. He also when realising that this was the end of the road, supported me mentally all the way down in my decision. Flying half over the world to end up 300 meters from the top on a technically very easy mountain, well, it is very easy not to laugh then. So, with that said, I would without any hesitation recommend Jiwaki for you next trip to the most amazing mountains I have ever seen in my life.

    We went to different tour agencies but the profesionalism and charm from the Jiwaki agency convinced us right away. They spoke pretty good english and where helpfull and funny.

    The tour was simply amazing.
    Our guide William did it all. From start to finish he made us feel safe, cooked delicious food, spoke good english, listened to our needs, took great pictures on moments we couldn’t... He knows what he is doing and could tell us a lot about the mountain and how to climb it.

    If you are looking for a tour to Huayna Potosi, go to Jiwaki!

    5 star rating for food, shelter, guides, and clothes and climbing gear from the company.

    However, the office states that 70% reaches the top. In our case this was 25% (2/8). Personally I reached the top, but my girlfriend didn't. Please understand it is not an easy thing since you not only need to be fit, you need to be fit at this altitude and you need some pace to reach the top by sunset.

    Conclusion, if you really know where you are getting yourself into, i would definitely recommend this company! Well organized and experienced!

    I did two trips with this company. One day Peak Austria 5350mt and three day Husgna potosi just over 6000 mt. On both occasions the guides were very friendly and supportive. Good level of information and great company. I am 66 years old and they managed to get me up both climbs. Good company to go with very reliable, safe and with good quality equipment. One guide to every two people so if one person has to turn back they have spare guides to take them down and the other person can carry on.

    I highly recommend Jiwaki to anyone wanting to climb Huayna Potosi or explore the Cordillera Real. We did a 5 day trip with Jiwaki - starting with 2.5 days in the Cordillera Real including climbing Pico Austria and then straight into the 3 day Huayna Potosi ascent. The days hiking before really helped with our acclimatisation. Jiwaki exceeded our expectations - delicious food, supportive and encouraging guides, excellent equipment. So we’ll organised - the guides really know what they are doing and I always felt safe and confident with them. Overall a fantastic experience. Thank you so much especially to Rudy and Eric for the first few days and to Ivan for getting me to the summit even though I was struggling and for all the brilliant photos! Highly recommend.

    All in all had an amazing 3 days. The difference between the 2 and 3 day tour is that you obviously have an extra day to acclimatise however you also get to practice some ice walking techniques on a nearby glacier. You also have the opportunity to attempt some ice climbing (not used on the actually summit attempt however was a great experience)

    My guide on the main day was Eulogio who was superb. He supported me and even carried tea to help and ensure I made the summit. He was also nice enough to take photos (without us knowing), sharing with us later on to remember and reflect on the day

    Would recommend to anyone (with a decent level of fitness)

    It’s hard to write a comment to express the mix of emotions that I had. Literally best experience of my life. Couldn’t make it without the help of our guide Reynaldo that had the patience and good words to keep us going . I spent around 6 weeks at around 3400 - 3600m altitude in Cusco and la Paz ,but everything above 5000 is a game changer. I would recommend to take the 3 days and 2 nights .I’ve met people that unfortunately didn’t had the necessary time to do the 2 nights and tried to rush it and they didn’t make it to the top. Take 1-2 altitude pills just in case and always ask advice from your guide before taking them.

    Jiwaki was a great company to do the hike with. I am a beginner climber with no pervious experience, and they taught me how to use all the gear and proper techniques really well so I was prepared for the climb. The gear provided by the company was also great and warm, and the food was amazing!!
    Eulogio did the ascent with me on the final day to the summit, and he was the best tour guide I could have asked for. The Huayna Potosí climb was an intense physical challenge for me that I was not sure I would be able to surmount, however with Eulogio’s much appreciated encouragement, cocoa tea, and patience and we actually made it to the top!! He also was very funny and took lots of great photos, and spoke great English and French which was fun to have a chat 😊. I would highly recommend Jiwaki tours for Huayna Potosí, and would highly reccomend Eulogio as a tour guide !!

    Fantastic experience, the guides on the trip do everything in their power to make sure you summit on the final day.

    They provide valuable information and answer all questions to help everyone looking to summit.

    Our guide Juan was great a very knowledgeable guide who set the perfect pace we needed to summit on the final day

    Accommodation was in dorms but was still comfy & food was good, the group never went hungry.

    An amazing and challenging experience ! Me and my friend Anthony, el hombre caliente, will be back for more.

    Make sure to seek out Eulogio Ilusco. If you are looking for an awesome guide who will bring you to the summit while being calm and collected, this very experienced guide is the way to go. We cannot overstate his professionalism and conduct during the adventure. Here is his What’s App contact : +59171902416

    Jiwaki really is a top agency.

    I did the 2 day trip, but definitely definitely do the 3 day. It may say it’s for beginners, but still incredibly fit and acclimatised beginners, and I think the extra day would help a lot. I miraculously made the top but the two others in my group didn’t make it. Was the hardest thing I’ve ever done so please don’t go into it lightly, bare in mind only 20-30% make the summit (I’ve heard) for good reason. However, it was also incredibly rewarding. Juan was my guide and he was excellent, encouraging and patient, though maybe could’ve been even more encouraging at times when I needed and let me know how we were doing a bit more often. Most importantly though I felt totally safe with him.The overall service by Jiwaki was also excellent.
