Cerro Gigante

Driving the road to Cerro Gigante is not a piece of cake

Cerro Gigante is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.286m (17,342ft) above the sea level, located  in the Kimsa Cruz mountain range in the Andes of Bolivia. The road to the summit is totally unpaved. It's one of the highest roads of the country.

The road is impassable in winters. 4x4 vehicle required. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. Located in the La Paz Department, the climb is simply terrible, with a notorius lack of oxygen that tests the organisms and a high degree of steepness. Most people feel altitude sickness at around 2,500-2,800 meters. Near the summit, oxygen is in short supply.
