Condoriri National Park is one of the most beautiful areas of the glaciated High Andes of South America. 15 sharp peaks encircling a glacial valley with a series of blue lakes and rich wildlife. The rock spires are the realm of the Andean Condors. The locals in this area, who are called palcoqueños, direct descendents of the ancient nation Paca Jaquis or eagle men, are gentle people, proud of their roots and cultural heritages and very keen to transmit it to us. We undertake a superb 3 day trek linking the area of Condoriri and the Huayna Potosi mountain.
