Topos can be found at the excellent website by Davide Vitale (Davide.vitale@hotmail.com):

Davide is trying to set it up as a base for climbers to go dragging and to explore the nearby mountains of the Corderilla Real. If you are passing by, it is worth seeking out and if you contact David, he can organise accommodation, which can also be with a local family if you want. Davide is Belgian but speaks excellent English and Spanish as well.

Approach notes

Access: From La Paz, go to Ceja and continue until the bus terminal “Chacaltaya”. From here, it's possible to take minibuses until Peñas-Kerani-Coromata-Chachacomani. Stop at Peñas (more or less one hour). There are few shops in the village for buying food. The easiest way to sleep is to ask inhabitants for father Antonio or Davide at the church “Nuestra Señora de la Natividad”, where climbers will be welcome.

About an hour from La Paz by car.
