Inspiration - Cholita Climbers of Bolivia

We are proud to present our October moment of inspiration. 

We believe the women are capable of anything they set their mind to. Our dreams may be different but no one can tell you that you cannot reach them.

The Cholita Climbers of Bolivia are a living example of this truth. After years of serving as high altitude cooks, porters, wives, and mothers in a traditionally patriarchal society, these women decided that it was their turn to climb.

The Cholita Climbers of Bolivia

"Cholitas" are Bolivian women with indigenous heritage known for their colorful attire, round top hats and ornate earrings. In the world's highest capital city of La Paz, Bolivia, 11 Cholitas are on a mission to overcome sexism and discriminatory attitudes and climb mountains in their traditional garb.
