The Condoriri and Tuni Trek leads you from the dynamic city of La Paz deep into the Cordillera Real, where the sky-high peak of Condoriri towers over you as you travel. Hike to high alpine lakes like Laguna Ajwani and Laguna Jurikhota, which glimmer turquoise under the bright sun. Pitch your tent at their shores and marvel at the star-filled sky.

The Condoriri and Tuni Trek takes you from pass to pass as you travel under peaks and past swampy lagoons, which light up the air with rainbows when the conditions are right. After exploring the rugged terrain, you’ll be welcomed warmly by the Tuni people. These locals will show you what life in the Bolivian mountains is like, from yoga to cooking meals together and dancing.
