  • Exploration Path

    After having conducted several explorations at more than 4,000 m.a.s.l. (13,123 f.a.s.l) and gradually acclimatizing our body, we leave by van from explora to a remote camp in Bolivia on the sixth day. Once settled in the camp, we take a walk across the areas of the Verde and Blanca lagoons, from where we have a good view of the Licancabur Volcano. The next day we wake up early to begin walking before dawn. We use headlamps to light a well-marked trail. Halfway along the ascent we watch the dawn over the Blanca and Verde lagoons. We reach the summit after walking for several hours. From here, we have a view to the crater and the world’s highest lagoon. Descent can be challenging due to steep slopes and unstable terrain. We cross oldInca ruins on the way back.
