Every bucket list should include a high peak, so how about Huayna Potosi, which stands at 20,000 feet—a mile higher than anything in the continental United States? Located in the Cordillera Real, Huayna Potosi requires crampons and ice axes but not too much extensive technical mountaineering experience beyond those basic pieces of equipment. The standard route is a straightforward glacier climb and there are tons guided trips out of La Paz, just 15 miles away. Plan for time to acclimate to the altitude, plus three days for the summit climb and return trip ($400 for 3-day trip; bolivianmountainguides.com)
