Description

The Apolobamba mountain range is a seldom-traveled trail despite its natural beauty combining high plateau, valleys and snowcapped mountains.

It is a mystical region, where world-famous native healers known as kallawayas live. It is also the place of a National Reserve of alpacas, an endangered Andean lamoid. It is a magical place of perpetual snowcapped mountains and few native inhabitants. In addition, the journey allows us to travel around the Bolivian high plateau visiting villages with colonial churches you cannot miss.

Go Bolivia offers you a trekking through the spiritual center of this region, Curva – Pelechuco, walk not only for the body but also for the mind and soul.

Itinerary 1


  • Day 1:
    La Paz - Charazani - Curva

    Departure early from La Paz on a vehicle. We cross the high plateau along the edge of Lake Titicaca. In the port of Escoma we go into the Apolobamba mountain range. We are able to see small mountainous massifs before we descend to the village of Charazani, located already in a valley. Later, we continue the journey toward the native village of Curva, home of the migrating Andean healers known as kallawayas.

  • Day 2:
    Curva - Jantunpampa

    We leave early to ascend between ravines and Andean plantations. A spectacular view of stunning Mount Akamani, sacred mountain for the kallawayas, could be seen. To the sides, a succession of splendid snowcapped mountains. The trail toward Jatunpampa continues by a deep valley.

  • Day 3:
    Jantunpampa - Cascadas de Incachani

    We leave from Jatunpampa following a path that will lead us up to the foot of the glacier. After enjoying lunch, we are ready to go down to the ruins of Incachani. We install our camp near the waterfalls.

  • Day 4:
    Incachani - Sunchulli

    We leave from the waterfalls taking the path that starts with a gentle but constant ascent. Beside the path runs a small ravine that goes down to the valley of Sunchilli, where we will see the famous pre-Columbian mines.

  • Day 5:
    Sunchulli - Illo Illo

    Last day of descent to Pelechuco. Relaxed day. There is more oxygen in the air due to the presence of a humid valley with wild flowers along the path. Here, the pre-Columbian trail appears calling to the mind a large alley that leads us to the village of Pelechuco, in Aymara language: Punu Kucho ("place where the mist sleeps"). Accommodation.
