Day 1: La Paz - Laguna Tuni - Laguna Juri Khota (4700m/ 15,420ft)
We leave La Paz early for the village Tuni from where our trek starts. First we follow the Laguna Tuni then we cross a mountain pass at 4900m/16.076ft on the slopes of Kuntur (4926m/16,161ft) before we walk down to the Laguna Juri Khota. From here we have a beautiful view on the "the head of the condor”, 5648m/18.530ft, and the Condoriri massive.
Day 2: Laguna Juri Khota - Laguna Chiar Khota (4760m/15,617ft)
From Juri Khota we climb a rather steep slope before reaching the small Laguna Congelada that gets its name from the 2 glaciers that fall into it. Later we pass the Pico Austria pass at 5160m/16.929ft and from here we descend to the Laguna Chiar Khota (4760m/15.617ft), base camp for the Condoriri climb and other climbs like the Pequeño Alpamayo or the Pico Tarija.
Day 3: Laguna Chiar Khota - Laguna Wichu Khota (4680m/15,354ft)
We leave the surroundings of the Condoriri and walk to the foot of the Aguja Negra crossing the mountain pass Jallayko (5025m/16,486ft). In the Jistaña valley we change mountainside and we climb to the Thipala mountain pass (5000m/16.404ft). After having enjoyed the wonderful view of the lakes we walk down to the Laguna Wichu Khota where we set up camp in front of the Maria Lloco (5522m/18,117ft).
Day 4: Laguna Wichu Khota – Santa Fe – Maria Lloco (4800m/15,748ft)
We advance in between the lakes until the old campsite for the Santa Fe mine, at the foot of the Imilla Apachita (5184m/17.008ft). From the highland above the abandoned mine Santa Fe we have a wonderful view of the lakes.
Day 5: Maria Lloco – Huayna Potosi Shelter (4700m/15,420ft) – La Paz
In the morning we hike to the glacier lake of Huayna Potosi. The trail leading there is a dried out canal on the mountain slope, and it is one long viewpoint (2½ hrs return). We then return to the path that brings us to the Milluni mountain pass (5000m/16,404ft) and from here we walk down to the valley to the Huayna Potosi shelter. From here we can see how the river literally falls into the green and tropical Yungas. This is also where our trek ends. A car will be waiting for us to take us back to La Paz in the afternoon.
