Choro Trek

One of the most popular downhill treks in Bolivia and achievable by nearly everybody, a shame to miss if time allows you the luxury of experiencing this fabulous and sometimes demanding adventure. Walk in the steps of the Inca from a barren 4,900m down a beautifully preserved stone path into the subtropical vegetation of the Yungas, where you’ll see citrus & banana trees, coffee and coca plantations, colorful birds and butterflies and if you’re extremely lucky you’ll catch a glimpse of the elusive spectacled bear staring back at you. Expect to get your feet wet in the pristine waterfall-fed stream crossings and stay at the crazy old Japanese home, set up camp in his garden. Ending in the town of Chairo you can choose to stay in the lovely tropical town of Coroico or return directly to La Paz.

Takesi Trek

This is one of the most impressive and popular downhill walks in the Andes amongst travelers and locals. This trail links the barren altiplano with the lush subtropical Yungas, and gives you the rare opportunity to witness such extremes in amazing landscapes. There are spectacular views of the Mururata Peak and you will pass abandoned mines, cascading rivers, exquisite lagoons and quaint villages. This is one of the best preserved pre-Inca trails and almost half of the trail consists of extraordinary stonework/paving making this trip incredibly accessible without taking away from the adventurous river crossings and camping in the great outdoors. Your trip will come to an end in one of Bolivia’s oldest towns, Yanacachi.
