You'll be picked up at your hotel or hostel in La Paz at 6:00am and depart in our private transport for Sorata, whose main square we'll reach in about 3½ hours. The trek begins at Pampacolani, a small town an hour out of Sorata. Although it's easy to get lost at this point due to the labyrinth of tracks, we'll guide ourselves by the small villages along the way. We'll stop for lunch and after a rest reiniciate our trek until reaching Chilata Lagoon, where we'll set up camp at the famous Muela del Diablo, or Devil's Tooth, a jagged 150m high rock formation also known as Father Hill in Aymara, Auqui Kollo. Our estimated trekking time for the day will have been 4-6 hours.
After a replenishing breakfast our trek continues along a small track, reaching moraine walls, masses of rock and sediment carried down and deposited by glaciers, which we'll climb over in order to win stunning views of massive Lake Titicaca, the sacred Sun Island of the Incas, the edge of Ancohuma, and Glacier Lagoon. With this humbling panorama before us, we'll rest while the cook prepares lunch.
After lunch, we'll trek the surroundings of this rarified place, one of the highest lagoons in Bolivia at 5038m. Here, we'll set us camp under the stars of the southern hemisphere. Our estimated trekking time for the day will have been 7-8 hours.
Today we'll walk back down from our newly-found paradise. It's an easy descent to Laguna Chilata, where we'll stop for lunch and a rest. From there we continue on to Sorata. At approximately 5:00pm, we board our private transport for the return trip from Sorata to La Paz. Overall, our estimated trekking time for the day will have been 7-8 hours.
