1. La Paz - Sorata (2700m/8.858ft)
We leave La Paz in a private vehicle around 8h00. Our destination is the small village of Sorata situated at the bottom of a green valley at the foot of the imposing Illampu Massif (6368m/20.892ft). When the weather permits we can see its snow clad peak from the main square in Sorata. We spend the night in Sorata.

2. Sorata - Lacatiya (3900m/12.795ft)
In the morning, after breakfast, we meet our group of mule drivers and after having charged the animals our trek starts. This first day of hiking will not be easy and we start with a long ascend to the Estancia Lacatiya which will be our first campsite.

3. Lacatiya - Paso Illampu – Estancia Utjaña Pampa (3900m/12.795ft)
We start early by hiking to the Illampu mountain pass at 4750m/15.584ft from where we can see the north peak of the Illampu (6370m/20.899ft) and the Schulze Peak (5950m/19.521ft). We then walk down the northeast slope of the Illampu until the Estancia Utjaña Pampa. In this area you can find plenty small gold mines that are still exploited.

4. Estancia Utjaña Pampa - Aguas Calientes (4200m/13.780ft)
In the morning we start by following the river Janq´u Uma (White Waters). We then ascend to the base camp of the Illampu, called “Aguas Calientes” (Warm Waters).

5. Aguas Calientes - Laguna Glaciar (5038m/16.529ft) - Laguna Chilata (4200m/13.780ft)
While our mules are walking slowly down to our evening camp we set forth on a trail leading to the Laguna Glaciar. This lake, surrounded by the giants Illampu and Ancohuma, and where the glaciers fall into its waters, offers us a beautiful view on the Lake Titicaca and the valley of Sorata. We then walk down to the Laguna Chilata, to our camp.

6. Laguna Chilata - Sorata - La Paz We walk down to Sorata in the morning and in the afternoon the car takes us back to La Paz (3-4hrs) where the rest of the day is free. End of our services

Prices Ancohuma and Illampu 7 days


All treks out of Sorata are quite challenging as they start off with a steep ascend in high altitude, but they are without doubt worth the effort and the Ancohuma/Illampu Trek is no exception. The Laguna Glaciar is fascinating with small floating icebergs and the Laguna Chilata is a sacred lake where witches even today use its powers to (try to) cure people. You find ruins that date back to the Mollu culture, amazing sunsets and fantastic views. Truly a breathtaking trek – in more than one sense!!
