On January 23, 2019, five indigenous Bolivian women, aged 42 to 50, completed a climb of Argentina’s Aconcagua (22,841 feet), the tallest peak in South America.
The women are members of the Aymara indigenous group. They work as porters and cooks in mountain camps on Huayna Potosí (19,974 feet), one of Bolivia’s tallest peaks.
Here is their story via the Great Big Story video.
Aconcagua is the highest peak in the world outside of Asia.
