Pequeño Alpamayo’s Snowy Peak
Beautiful basecamps are a real treat at this mountain range in the Bolivian Andes. Set on the stunning Chiar Khota Lake, hikers fortify themselves with fresh trout caught in the lower mountain lakes before ascending the surrounding peaks. Greener mountaineers or those looking for a warm-up will enjoy fun day hikes to Austria Peak, a popular trekking route outside of basecamp. The pyramid of snow that is Pequeño Apalmayo is the main attraction and you’ll experience an additional summit of Tarija peak on your way to the top. Serious mountaineers can attempt Condorri Peak from the same basecamp, making this location ideal for a range of interests and abilities.
