LA PAZ TO CHALLAPAMPA – MOUNTAINS AND INCA PAVING
You will be picked up from the hotel at around 08:30 am. in private transport for the 45 min to 1 hour drive to La Cumbre (4.700 m.a.s.l.) which is the starting point for the trek. Here it can be very cold in the mornings and it is not uncommon to find snow and ice on the ground so you will need warm clothing for this section where you will start the trek which is going to lead us to the warm valleys of Los Yungas. We will walk up to 4.900 m. and here we will find the pre inca trail and then we start to descend. After around a 6 hour walk, we will arrive to the village of Challapampa where we will set up camp.
CHALLAPAMPA TO SAN FRANCISCO – CLOUD FOREST VIEWS
Today is a harder walking day and involves several up and down sections . As the day goes on the vegetation becomes denser and the climate more tropical. The views are stunning and very typical of the “Yungas” cloud forest area. After around 6.5- hours walk we will arrive to San Francisco where we eat and spend the night camping.
SAN FRANCISCO TO COROICO – SEMI TROPICAL JUNGLE TRAILS
The last day involves around 5 or 6 hours walking and is mostly very hot so you will need plenty of water and it is advisable to use insect repellent. The trek ends at the village of Chairo and from there we will take a transfer to Coroico where our trek will come to an end.
