La cima del Cerro Chacaltaya si eleva sino a 5.395 metri sopra il livello del mare. L’anticima è di circa duecento metri inferiore in altezza. Si trova in Bolivia, nella Cordillera Real, poco distante dalla capitale La Paz.

Il periodo migliore per effettuare l’ascensione è indubbiamente durante l’inverno australe, tra giugno e settembre. Per l’ascesa partendo dal rifugio in quota del Club Andino Boliviano e la salita non presenta particolari difficoltà dal punto di vista alpinistico, a parte la rarefazione dell’aria, d’altronde già assuefatta nella città di Laz Paz che è collocata a una altezza di 3649 metri d’altezza.

Il monte Chacaltaya entra a far parte delle cronache alpinistiche italiane nel 1965 quando l’alpinista, scrittore e cineasta Mario Fantin durante una spedizione in Perù entra in contatto con "il Tibet del Sud America". Oggi il Cerro Chacaltaya è considerato il belvedere della Cordillera Real, un susseguirsi di cime al di sopra dei 5000 metri e molte abbondantemente sopra i 6000 metri. Il panorama spazia dall’Illimani (6.462 mt.) al Mururata (5.775 mt.) fin oltre al Condoriri (5.696 mt.), ma la vista migliore è sul vicino Huayna Potosi (6.088 mt.), definito, da Reinhold Messner, una delle vette più belle del mondo.

 

El Cerro Chacaltaya is located in Bolivia, in the Cordillera Real, 5,395 meters above sea level not far from the capital La Paz.

The best time to make the ascent undoubtedly is during the austral winter, between June and September. For the rise we could starting from the refuge at high altitude of Bolivian Andean Club and the climb is not particularly difficult in terms of wilderness, apart from the thin air already accustomed to the city of Laz Paz which is situated at a height of 3649 meters.

Mount Chacaltaya joins the news in 1965 when the Italian alpine mountaineer, writer and filmmaker Mario Fantin during an expedition in Peru comes in contact with this "Tibet of South America." Today Cerro Chacaltaya is considered the viewpoint of the Cordillera Real, a succession of peaks above 5000 meters and many well above 6000 meters. The landscape ranges from Illimani (6462 m,), Mururata (5775 m.), until after Condoriri the (5696 mt.) but the best view is on the nearby Huayna Potosi (6088 mts.) defined by Reinhold Messner one of the most beautiful peaks in the world.
