3d2n Choro trail, trekking

 

Highlights:

  • The most popular trekking which links the high plateau with the humid lowlands.
  • Cobbled trails zigzagging down to the area of Coroico.
  • Pristine waterfalls and suspended bridges.
  • Trekking from an altitude of 4.700m/15400ft to 1.300m/4250ft

It is one of the best treks, in terms of pre-colonization conservation. 30 % of the trek is on a cobble-stone laid street, which presumably was built in the pre-Inca era, in order to link the High-Plateau with that of the Yungas valleys.

This pre-Columbian road is one example of the Tiwanaku and Inca cultures’ skills, to build paved roads that linked the mountainous high plateau with the sub-tropical Yungas area. Many rivers that spring from The Andes pour its waters into the great Amazon River. In the trek, we will witness a variety of birds, pendulous bridges and exotic flowers.

Day 1: Chucura - Challapampa. 2.800m

Pick up from your hotel and a drive toward the summit, the start of the trek.  At 4600m, we will see the characteristic fauna of the plateau, llamas and alpacas, as well as gulls flying over the dam and water carriers that are considered good luck. From this point on, we must still reach the top at 4780m. Gaining altitude slowly and gradually until we reach the “paso” where hikers usually leave offerings for good luck. From this point onwards we start our descent into a lower and more vegetated area, passing by several pre-columbian buildings. 6 hours walking, camping.

Meals: lunch and dinner

Night: camping

Day 2: Challapampa - Pabellonani

Today we start our walk after a well-deserved rest, equipped with lighter clothes. The path is still well preserved, and shows the creativity and skill of the Tiwanaku, in the era before the arrival of the Incas. These roads were used to connect different ecological systems bringing products to upland subtropical areas, maintaining an active trade. Across bridges over rivers of clear water, which are tributaries of the Amazon system. In the afternoon we arrive at our campsite in Pabellonani. Approximately 6 ½ hours walking, camping.

Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner

Night: camping

Day 3: Pabellonani - Chairo - La Paz

Starting the trek in the early morning to take advantage of the best views of this part of the walk. The area becomes wet and the vegetation more abundant. The path built defies geography, going down winding turns; there are cascades of water that are used by locals for consumption and agricultural work. At noon we arrive at the Sandillani an area with a garden of unparalleled beauty, next to the main trail.  In the afternoon we reach the end of our journey and arrive at the town of Chairo 1200m, where our vehicle awaits us, returning us back to your hotel in La Paz.
