This is Bolivia’s most popular major peak because of its imposing beauty and ease of access, as well as the fact that it’s 88m over the magic 6000m figure (but 26ft under the magic 20,000ft figure). While most people come here to climb, you can also stay at the mountain lodge, and head out for some fun hikes or mountain biking.
Though some people attempt to climb Huayna Potosí in one day, it is not recommended. You’re better off attempting the climb in two or three days (three days is best for newbies to ensure you properly acclimatize and learn the ropes before you hit higher sections). Guided trips cost between B$900 and B$1400.
