Huayna Potosi is Bolivia’s most popular major peak in the Cordillera Real. Located at just 32 km from the city of La Paz, Huayna Potosi is known for its ease of access and imposing beauty as well as the fact that it is 88 meters over the magic 6000 meter figure. Huayna Potosi can be climbed by beginners with a competent guide and technical equipment. Beginners yes, but fit beginners; it’s quite steep toward the end and it’s a tough climb, but well worth the effort!

Absolutely incredible excursion, Johnny the guide was excellent, the climb was one of the hardest things I've ever done but the view from the topo brought me to tears. Would highly recommend to anyone, very professional company and an experience not to be missed!

My friend and I took the chance to try on Huayana Potosí with JIWAKI, and we can highly recommend it!

Our guide William simply did an allover great job, while taking constant care of safety, informing and motivating us when there was a need.

He constantly prepared every next step, assessed our condition and, most important, set a continuous pace.

The equipment was more than complete and modern, in short words: flawless!
(for example: Petzl crampons and helmet, Scarpa alpine boots and rugged company customized clothes).

We felt safe and well guided at any time, the food was tasty and William took gorgeous photos of us during the trip.

We had perfect weather conditions, only few other roped parties on the way and are in good cardio fitness condition.

The ascent from the altitude camp (5200m) to the summit takes around 5 to 6,5 hours, depending on the speed. It's exhausting, slightly technical, and you should adapt consequently to the altitude many days before the trip, to be in the best shape and lower the risk of altitude sickness.

Advanced level of mental and physical fitness is necessary.

All the organization matters were impeccable and at a high level of experience.

Thank's JIWAKI for this awesome experience!
Jiwaki - great service

These guys are new in the game but their equipment and service is impeccable. Franz the owner explained all the details to us in person and didn't leave anything out.
Would recommend doing the 3 day climb as the first day on the ice wall sounds like a lot of fun.
The guides on the climb were great (they don't speak much English though - none really do). They motivated us to get to the top and made sure we got enough rest stops.
You are (as with any company) attached in pairs to a guide.
The hike itself is tough but worth the effort to reach that 6088m summit. We were there in November and didn't get much of a view but those the day after did.
Refuge and food were comfortable and copious.
In summary, great service and would recommend.
