4D3N CHORO TREK
HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The most popular trekking which links the high plateau with the humid lowlands.
  • Cobbled trails zigzagging down to the area of the Yungas
  • Pristine waterfalls and suspended bridges.
  • Reach an altitude of 4,874m and descend to 1,274m

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 trail is one example of the Tiwanaku and Inca cultures’ skill, 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.

In the 4days 3nights program you start the trekking program from La Cumbre 4.725m, you will have the time to look around and soak in the ancient beauty of the place, there is a great opportunity to connect to this wild and unique place, Bolivia’s nature is beautiful, but what will take your trip from pretty good to unforgettable is experiencing the local culture.
