climb Wila Manquilisani at 5280m altitude - the day tour with a technical route

Within 1h30 you can drive fom the city center of La Paz to the foot of Wila Manquilisani. It is a mountain which definitely deserves its status as ther is no easy way up to the summit. Even the "normal" route includes 55° slopes and the last part to the summit is usually mixed terrain. A breathtaking and Adrenaline charged way to acclimate for higher summit. From the summit the view is open on the Yungas cloud forest, Huayna Potosi 6094m and Illimani 6440.
