Bolivia Cholita Mountain Climbers Photo Gallery

In this Dec. 17, 2015 photo, Aymara indigenous women descend the Huayna Potosi mountain with their guides on the outskirts of El Alto, Bolivia. The women work as porters and cooks at the base camp, but six of the youngest ones would like to eventually join the ranks of the men and guide tourists to the peak. While the minimum wage for a housekeeper is around 175 US dollars a month, guides can earn 35 US dollars per person a day. Currently the women earn 20 US dollars per day as cooks.
