Huayna Potosi is one of the white peaks surrounding La Paz and claimed to be an easy to climb 6000 m peak.

While many people get to enjoy this lovely trek, watching the nature changing from high mountains to green jungle, we were not so lucky and our hike went completely different than we have expected.
