Description

Join me on this 4-day guided Choro trek. I will take through the Bolivian plateau and subtropical valleys of the Yungas. An incomparable experience to relive the history of the Tiwanaku and Inca civilizations.

To begin with, on Day 1, I will pick you up at La Paz. From there, we will dive 1 hour outside the city, where the trek will begin. We will encounter the traditional Inca cobbled path.

Days 2 and 3 will be marked by treks Pabellonani and Chairo. Finally, on Day 4, I will guide you through the scenic location of Coroico, in the Uchumachi mountain. Later, we will then return to la Paz, where the trip ends.

This 4-day guided Choro trek includes going through the natural mountain pass Apacheta at 4,700 m. Also, the approximate distance we will walk is 70 km.

While I rate the difficulty of this trek as Easy, I recommend good acclimatization and good physical shape.

Mountain Guide

I work together with several IFMGA/UIAGM colleagues. So if I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues equally certified will guide you.

I began to climb the mountain when I was 15 years old. I was born in Pinaya (3.800 m.a.s.l.), a region located not far away from the top of the base camp of the majestic snow-covered Illimani (6.462 m.a.s.l.). I dedicated most part of my life to climb different ice and Rock Mountains through the Cordillera Real, Cordillera Occidental, and Cordillera de Apolobamba.

The overall experience was quite excellent. The guide as well as mountain were fantastic and I had an absolutely incredible time climbing this mountain. Jenaro is an fantastic example of hard working South American who wants best for his people as well as his clients. For example, when we initially met he found out how I was charged almost twice as much for a taxi as I should have been, chased the taxi driver down, and made them give me back my money. He is a very caring and very responsible guide. However, I was somewhat concerned about the overall organization of the trip. First and foremost, Jenaro is not actually the guide who goes up the mountain with you - he runs the organization that provides a guide as well as any gear you may need. In addition, at times the entire outfit seemed quite disorganized. For example, when I arrived to La Paz and let Jenaro know I had arrived he thought I was coming the next day and seemed to need convincing to let me hike the day I wanted to despite multiple back and forth discussions over WhatsApp. There were other small, yet very prominent, cases of of not having clear organization. As said before, Jenaro is a very caring and knowledgeable resource in La Paz however could certainly improve in organization and structuring his business.

Jenaro and Pedro where highly Unmotivated to assist me in ascending Sajama. I had to stop them from changing the program to seeing the Salt Flats and seeing Copacabhana. They wanted me to see that first and then hike by myself there to "acclimatize " when El Alto is higher than those places. They talked about everything in Bolivia except Mount Sajama. They just wanted me to fail. Please do not advertise their services to other climbers on your platform, thanks. -Ishaaq
