This one-week guided Apolobamba trekking tour is perfect for passionate, tireless hikers. During these days, I will guide you around the Muñecas and Apolobamba mountain ranges in the Andes. You will experience truly unique landscapes and views.

First, I will pick you up at La Paz. During the transfer we will go by the well-known Titikaka lake, and through Achacachi. Later, we will camp on the valley (3,700 m).

Next, on Day 2, you will have time to walk around the village, almost miraculously suspended in the mountain. Also, this village makes for a great viewpoint of the Akamani mountain. Later, the trekking begins. We will walk for around 5 hours to the camp (4,200 m).

Then, from Days 3 to 6 I will take you trekking to exceptional places, including:

  • The vestiges of Inka Kancha (4,200 m)
  • The Sunchuli valley – where the Incas are said to have worked with gold
  • The Sunchuli pass (5,100 m)
  • The Illo Illo river
  • The village of Pelechuco

Finally, on Day 7 we will return to La Paz. On our way back, I will take you to the Ulla Ulla National Park, reservoir for vicuñas and other endangered species.

The one-week Apolobamba trekking tour is the most attractive and satisfactory trip in my list. The tour includes waterfalls, Andean panoramic views, Inka paths, and passes of up to 5,100 m.

While I rate the level of this trekking tour as Easy, I recommend a good acclimatization and good physical shape.
