Amazing Hike Through the Nevado Condoriri: Pico Austria One day Tour

The Nevado Condoriri is a name of Aymara origin that means “Condor’s head”, this Nevado has a height of 5648 m.a.s.l. It is situated in La Paz Bolivia, his closer approach begins in a place known as Rinconada, this is where we start walking for an hour till we get to the lagoon “Chiar Khota”.

This place offers stunning scenery with amazing snowcapped peaks, beautiful Andean lakes, good altitude training before climbing or simply an easy way to go on a fantastic short trek in the majestic Cordillera Mountain range. It has an approximate extension of 15 kilometers and its figure dominates imposing the region. The locals say this place was the refuge of the condors, the largest and most ferocious Andean birds.
