CONDORIRI CLIMBING

The Condoriri has 13 peaks over 5,000 meters. This is one of our favorite mountain because it offers many possibilities of cilmbing, some of which are of very accessible, but still offering spectacular scenery and real emotions.
The emblem of this region is without doubt the Condoriri, which takes its name from its shape : a condor with folded wings.
Warning : A good acclimatization is essential for the success of the climb safely. Very good physical condition.
