When landing in La Paz, the airplane unavoidably circles a magnificent and imposing mountain: Huayna Potosí. This snowy peak grants the traveler his first wave of emotion even before having stepped on land. This mountain is, without a doubt, the most accessible peak over 6000 meters in the Andes. How could one not want to attempt the ascent? The classic route does not present any particular technical difficulties. Good physical condition combined with good acclimatization is enough to ensure success.
