3 Days / 2 Nights
La Paz being the synthesis of Bolivia is an appropiate site to undertake endless hikes in the Cordillera Real (mountains), the Yungas Valleys, and the semitropical and tropical zones of this Department.
There are hikes starting in the Cordillera from about 4800 m and descending to 1500 m. They have a great contrast of landscapes and ecological zones that can be observed on the journey. Within these areas there are hikes that are highlighted by the Pre-Columbian roads (Choro, Takesi, Yungas Cruz), where the cobblestone paths that were built and used by pre-Incan cultures in order to trade edible products with the communities in the different geographical zones of the Department are still preserved.
We start the day at 08:00 when you are picked up from the hotel. Then we head off in a private vehicle to Apacheta (4950 m). Around 09:30 we start the hike descending for 2 and a half hours towards Samaña Pampa which is known to be a cold valley. At 12:00 we have lunch at this place. After 1 hour of descent we continue the hike going down on a pre-Inca cobblestone path to Challapampa (2800 m). On the way we observe the vegetation of High Puna. After we pass the village of Chucura (3500 m). We arrive in Challapampa around 16:00 and have a hot drink while the guide takes care of putting up the tents and prepare dinner. After dinner we rest.
This day starts at 06:30 with breakfast. After an hour we head to the community of Choro on a hike which lasts 2 and a half hours where we rest for half an hour near a bridge. Then we continue until the Ukumarini River where we have lunch around 12:00 (it is possible to swim in this river). After resting for an hour and a half we continue on the hike descending and on the way we can appreciate the vegetation unique to the Yungas surrounded by mountains until we get to Puerto Japonés. From this point you pass near slopes and precipices finally arriving in Sandillani (2000 m) after 4 hours of hiking. In Sandillani the guide sets up the tents and makes dinner. After dinner we rest.
