Extend your trip in Bolivia with the country's most popular trek. The Choro Trek links the high plateau of the Andes with the subtropical lowlands. Hike through a landscape of glaciers and pristine waterfalls on ancient cobbled stone trails built before the Incas.
Please note that we require our travelers to spend at least 2 full days at altitude in order to acclimatize before starting this trek.
Hike to spectacular views of peaks & glaciers of the Andes
Look for colorful birds, butterflies, orchids, and even the spectacled bear
Your hotel pick-up is scheduled for 7:00am. Travel in a private vehicle to "La Cumbre" at 4,725m where we can observe the plateau's characteristic fauna, such as llamas, alpacas, and gulls. See water carriers that are believed to bring good luck. Afterwards, head to the village of Chucura, located at 3,695m above sea level, where we will begin our trek. Along the way, we will pass by pre-Columbian buildings as we descend into a more vegetated area. After about 7 hours of trekking, we will arrive at our campsite in the hamlet of "Buena Vista".
Day 2: Buena Vista | Sandillani
1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today, you begin your hike after a well deserved rest, equipped with lighter clothes. The trail is still well-preserved and includes both uphill and downhill sections, showcasing the creativity and skill of the Tiwanaku culture during the era before the Incas arrived. These paths were used to connect different ecological systems, allowing for active trade and the transportation of goods to upland subtropical areas. As you continue your trek, cross clear-water rivers that are tributaries of the Amazon system via bridges. In the afternoon, the vegetation will become denser as you enter the cloud forest, see a variety of wildflowers and great views. After trekking for approximately 6-7 hours, arrive at the campsite in the village of Sandillani.
Day 3: Sandillani | Chairo 1.264m
1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
Today the area becomes wet and the vegetation more abundant. The path defies the geography of the area by taking us down winding turns. Along the way, we'll see cascades of water that locals use for consumption and agricultural work. Subtropical banana palms and coffee plantations, as well as tropical birds and butterflies, will also be visible. After trekking for approximately 3 hours, we'll reach the end of our journey and arrive at the small village of Chairo at an elevation of 1,264m. Your driver awaits you to return you to La Paz for the evening.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
