Cordillera Real Traverse, Bolivia reviews

Read holiday reviews by Mountain Kingdoms travellers.


Royal range

Spectacular mountains, which are virtually deserted. Be prepared for days with no tracks, but superb views. A must are four season bag, good puffa jacket.... when sun goes down the temperature plummets. Very knowledgeable guide and excellent cook. If you love the mountains and deserted walking it’s a must.


Cordillera Real Traverse, Bolivia

We have just completed (Sept. 2018) the Cordillera Real Traverse, the classic Bolivian 120-km long trek in some of the most spectacular scenery in South America. We truly were wandering through the fields of wonder...miles of undulating hills, pristine valleys still owned by their original residents, glaciers-capped mountains, turquoise lakes – landscape so raw and untouched that it commands silence as not to taint its mystery by language. The trek offers what many seasoned trekkers dream of – solitude, wilderness, remoteness and the natural beauty that can restore the sense of balance, mental clarity and equanimity. Mind you, this trek is a tough one – there are no maps, signs, markings or established trails. You move through this vast landscape off-trail, following your guide whose judgements you don’t question. We entrusted our guide Jose Camarlinghi early on, recognizing his skills in traversing the land with an intuitive ease backed by his intimate familiarity with every turn, nook and corner of the entirety of this long path. His calm presence helped quell some anxieties about the not knowing or the more challenging, “What have I gotten myself into?” moments. I lift my hat and bow, Jose. Our local crew looked after us exceptionally well and made the experience even more special. The organization of the trip was impeccable. The only recommendations/changes I would suggest could be spending two nights at La Estancia rather than in Copacabana, and upgrading the hotel in La Paz. This trek would rank as one of my favourite, best ever experiences. I cannot recommend this trip with the Mountain Kingdoms more highly. Liz Kwas, Ottawa, Canada


Cordillera Traverse - lakes, mountains and glaciers at every new ridge!

A remote, stunningly beautiful trek at altitude in untrodden mountain scenery. Jose and Raimundo were superb guides and the standard of food on trek was excellent. This is a tough trek but very rewarding - be prepared for adventure and the chance to climb Pico Austria at 5,396m/17,698 ft


Great food

The trek cook was brilliant; the holiday was a really good trip with good quality hotels and accommodation.



The trip was well-organised, we had a small group and personal service. The food during the trek was the best ever! The cook deserves a medal.


Challenging but worth it

This trek was one of the most interesting, varied and challenging that I have experienced. A trek worth doing in a country worth visiting - before the glaciers recede even further.
