This was the second time that I have used Huyana Potosi agency. Dr. Hugo helped organize my climbs for Huyana Potosi, Pequeno Alpamayo and Illimani. I was very satisfied with their services. Ask for Jose Luis or Eduardo, they are both very good guides.

Hi there January is not the best time to climb , you can go by yourself as a private tour for one person it does cost more. As it’s the low season there are not groups leaving every day. Jeff
