Huayna Potosi is located 25 kilometers from the city of La Paz. The Huayna Potosi mountain links the Cordillera Real mountain range with a string of minor and abrupt peaks. The Huayna Potosi represents a special attraction, especially for the alpinists. In the last few years, its face has been escalated numerous times which is comparable to the Huascaran in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru. The best time of the year to climb the mountain is between May and October, during the dry season.
