Exclusive mountain climbing program "Climbing volcano Nevado Parinacota Normal route" with MCS AlexClimb Guides

Like a mirage in the middle of the sun-burned orange sierra, there are two towering peaks capped with snow domes, whose height are only available for rare climbers and yet for the lone Condor soaring high above – the King of the Andean peaks. Away from the main Andes mountain range, two single brothers - volcanoes Parinakota and Pomerape silently bear their eternal watch for already about 2,000 years - since the last eruption, when the huge stratovolcano split one into two separate pyramid craters. Of the two volcanoes - Parinakota - the highest, it is quite rarely climbed because of its somehow remote location from the most active tourist routes of Bolivia. However, this climb is really interesting and worth the extra days spent in the road. During the way to the Parinakota  volcano group which is situated right on the border with Chile you can get very close to the wonderful world of the high mountain desert, to have a look on the way of life of the very small local population unchanged for centuries, to visit famous for its natural contrasts Sajama National Park. Like most of the volcanic peaks, Parinakota is not technically difficult for climbing, it is requiring from the climbers mainly perseverance and fortitude. Significant altitude of Parinacota requires the acclimatization before climbing.
This 5-day program "Mountain climbing in Cordillera Real, Bolivia, climbing volcano Nevado Parinacota" was developed for people who have no prior experience in mountain climbing and who want to try themselves at the basic altitude mountain climbing route. For acclimatization before Parinacota climbing program we highly recommend climbing Huayna Potosi or at least participation in Solar Uyuni jeep tour. Regardless your climbing experience, we recommend attending the MCS AlexClimb Course of general physical preparation and  Course of Mountain Technique (basic level) before participating in this program.
The First Principle of MCS AlexClimb
The First Rule, by which we are guided in the development of our mountain programs - is safety. Professional Guides lead the group, the highest quality certificated equipment and the most modern navigation equipment are used. This guarantees the highest possible level of your safety in the mountains, which is the most important side of our work.

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
