Juri Khota-Condoriri

The Condoriri range is arguably one of the most varied "mini-ranges" in the Cordillera Real. This trek gives you a strong flavour of its diversity. Crossing 4 mountain passes - one each day - and passing three beautiful and vast lagoons, it really is an assault on the senses. The high altitude requires that you be reasonably well acclimatised to enjoy this trek, but it is not extremely physically demanding.
