The Condoriri National Park is Located in the Cordillera Real, a 12-mile wide and 100-mile long mountain range with more than 500 summits over 16,000 feet and 5 peaks towering over 20,000 feet. The park hosts an impressive number of colorful lakes and lagoons nestled at the bottom of the folds of steep glacier-covered slopes. A short drive from the Bolivian capital will take you to the start of your 2-day trek, an exhilarating experience that will see you climb from the shores of the Chiar Kota lagoon all the way to the top of Austria Peak, a staggering 17,290-foot mountain (5270 m). From up there, unrivalled views of mount Condoriri, 'the head of the condor' and even Huayna Potosi will open up before you. An unforgettable moment that will leave you feeling you have conquered the top of the world. Your trek will end around the Chiar Khota lagoon, with its impressive natural green tones before making your way back to La Paz.

On a clear day you can see the reflection of the giant Tuni on the calm waters.
