Description

Still considered as one of the Greatest Andean Trekking routes.

Walking from village to village we come across a typical Andean climate, which gives us the impression of being in the very heart of Aymara legends...

Our itinerary starts in the Yungacruz Inca trail, leading us through an uninterrupted seven-day descent which allows us to discover new and different ecological layers and various landscapes, going from snowcapped summits to subtropical vegetation with a great many waterfalls, with rich and varied flora and fauna as we descend from altitude.

Finally, we will arrive at the village of Chulumani (1700 m.a.s.l). Exuberant and calm place which will provide us a well-deserved rest. This trekking route links the high plateau and the temperate valleys of the southern end of La Paz with the subtropical zone of Yungas. It also shows in detail the domains of Mount Illimani.
