We leave at 8AM from La Paz in private transfer to La Cumbre (4700m). It’s the starting point of the famous “death route” leading to the Yungas. It’s also the starting point of our trek.
We ascend to Apacheta Chukura (4870m). The trek continues with a long descent to the valleys of Cordillera Real. We go through the villages Samaña Pampa and Chukura. Finally we reach the village of Challapampa.
Walking time: 6 hours
We continue the descent leaving the high mountain landscapes behind. The vegetation is now sub-tropical. We reach Choro around noon. Then some light ascents and descents take us to San Francisco.
Walking time: 5 hours
In the morning, we cross the Coscapa river. Then we start the “devil’s ascent” to reach the Sandillani village in the early afternoon (2000m). After some more hours walking, we end the trek in Chairo (1300m), where a 4×4 private vehicle awaits to take us to Coroico, the pearl of the Yungas, where we enjoy the forests.
Walking time: 4 hours
At La Paz.
We will have a cook and there is an option for vegetarian food.
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.
