Condoriri Mountain Trek, Bolivia


For those who love high altitude landscapes the Andes offer numerous options. A short drive outside of La Paz you can have these amazing vistas practically to yourself. While I can’t recommend our tour operator the scenery was stunning.


In September of 2015 we did a 5 day/4 night trek with Bolivian Journeys in the Condoriri Mountains outside of La Paz. While I would not recommend Bolivian Journeys the scenery was worth the inconveniences. For experienced hikers it is possible to hike in these mountains on your own, but for safety reasons I would suggest finding a reputable trekking company.
