La Paz and the altiplano: Choro Trek to Las Yungas

Choro Trek to Las Yungas

Difficulty rating:


Descending from the lung-busting heights of La Paz down to the steamy lowlands of Coroico in just four days, the Choro Trek presents an astounding spectrum of landscapes and climates.

The mostly downhill route drops 3,500m in altitude from start to finish, and in parts follows an original Inca paved path, at others relying on rickety bridges to transcend the deep gorges that rupture the trail. At almost every turn there are breathtaking views out towards misty hillsides, tumbling streams or tiny, isolated villages.

After a short climb at the beginning of the trek, the trail begins its relentless descent to the Yungas, a fertile subtropical region just below the foothills of the Andes. Passing sun-drenched farms and bottle-green mountains, the foliage becomes gradually more lustrous as you approach the end of the trail at Chairo. Conditions are basic and nights are spent under canvas, but this all adds to the sense of immersion in Bolivia's unspoiled natural landscapes.
