Illampu and Ancohuma tour – Cordillera Real
Trekking 7 days March to November Private Spanish or English speaking
Along the way…

We suggest that you do the entire tour of this magnificent mountain range around the “Giants” of the Cordillera that are Illampu (el. 6370 m.a.s.l.) and Ancohuma (el. 6430 m.a.s.l.).
It is a high-altitude trek, with passes between 4000 and 5000 meters high. Leaving from Sorata, a charming colonial village located at only 2700 meters, this trek takes us to a part of the Cordillera still seldom visited, where we might have the opportunity to see some condors . . .
