Infos & Booking


Peñas is a wonderful little village in the Bolivian Altiplano, located one hour and a half drive from La Paz and close to Titicaca lake. Overthere you will enjoy a magnificent view of the glaciers of the Royal Andes Mountain Range.

For 10 years now, it has been possible to practice climbing on the numerous red sandstone cliffs scattered around. Because of its special position, it is a mystical place for the Chiripa and Aymara cultures, who left many archaeological remains in the surrounding hills (4300 meters high...).

Meals and accommodation in local homes and a visit to a local handicraft workshop complete an unforgettable experience, both sporting and adventurous as well as human.

The program below is also an excellent way to acclimatize to altitude before undertaking a trek or a high altitude ascent in the Royal Andes Cordillera.


D1: Archaeological hike.
4-hour walk with a 300-meter positive difference in altitude around Peñas to visit rock paintings of the Chiripa culture and colonial ruins. On the way back, you visit of the handicraft workshop and try typical meals in the village.

D2: Multi pitch climbing routes in Peñas.
You climb all day long on the superb Placa del Aguila, 120 meters high. It's a good introduction to multi pitch routes because the anchors places are comfortable, the atmosphere is sunny and the descent is easy in abseiling.
