Illimani is the second-highest mountain in the Cordillera Real and the second-highest in Bolivia. This is the mountain that stands in the background of La Paz and makes for a stunning view. Due to its four major peaks, Illimani is often grouped with other mountains. Even from hundreds of miles distant, La Paz residents can see the towering peak of Illimani.
Although the Illimani mountain climb is challenging, those with climbing experience will find that it is well worth the effort. The altitude and duration of the climb might be difficult, thus being in good physical shape and acclimatised are essential.
