Description

I invite you to join me in this wonderful 3-day Choro trek in Cordillera Real. This expedition in Bolivia is quite famous. Come with me and discover why!

Throughout this trip you will enjoy extremely changing landscapes. They each have their own special appeal, and it’s wonderful to see how the environment changes as we walk.

The trip starts in La Paz, from where we go to La Cumbre by car. This is the starting point of the trek. After ascending Apacheta Chukura, we start descending in the wonderful valleys of the Cordillera Real.

During the trek we will go through different villages: Challapampa, Choro, San Francisco and Chairo.

In addition to the wonderful changing landscapes, we will be delighted by the abundant local fauna.

About the guide

guide profile img

IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide from Bolivia.

I organize mountaineering and trekking trips in different regions of Bolivia, and community tourism as well. I spend my free time exploring new destinations and discovering new mountains and cultures in remote regions.

I have more than 20 years of experience working in Cordillera Real, and I live in Tuni, Condoriri. I worked as mule driver, porter, cook, trekking guide assistant, trekking guide, and finally became IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide in 2008.

I made several ascents in Bolivia and neighboring countries like Argentina, Chile and Peru. Some of them: Ojos de Salado, Wallatiri, Urus, Azangate, Huayna potosí, Illimani, Chir oco, Chachacomani, Sajama, Illamapu, Acohoma, Chapi orco, Acotango, Parinacota… These experiences prepared me to organize and guide expeditions.

I like to provide a top level service to people from all around the world, help them get in contact with the local culture, and of course help them reach their objectives in the mountains.
