For those who love trekking and only have a few days in Bolivia, this classic 3-day Takesi trek might be just what you need. I will guide you through amazing sights and landscapes just a couple of hours outside La Paz.

This 3-day Takesi trek is designed to experience contrasting natural areas in a short period of time. For example, it includes segments in the Bolivian yungas, as well as in the mountains.

To begin with, on Day 1 I will pick you up at La Paz. We will then travel to the San Francisco mine, at the foot of the snowy Takesi. Once we ascend to 4,65o m, I will guide you on the descent through the valleys of the Yungas.

On Day 2, I will take you to lower regions with more temperate weather. Around this area, you will encounter unique flora, like giant ferns, orchids and begonias.

Finally, Day 3 marks the final trek to Chojilla. Once there, after lunch, we will return to La Paz.

Join me for this classic 3-day Takesi trek. Contact me for more information or questions. Interested in more trek options? Check out alternatives like Hiking to Chacapampa, Condoriri Massif and the 5-day Yunga Cruz trekking, Inca Trail.
