Our expedition begins and ends in the beautiful capital city of La Paz in Bolivia.
The trip will first take you to nearby Lake Titicaca where guests will discover some of the local treasures, allowing you to slowly acclimatise to the high altitude (roughly 4,000 m). You will then slowly climb up through the Condoriri Valley where you will be surrounded by 5,000 m + peaks.
This trekking expedition follows the Pre-Inca commercial road “El Choro”, used once upon a time to link the high mountains of the Andes to the Amazonian forest. The path is peppered with “Apachetas”; sacred stone cairns used as an offering to the Gods by the indigenous people for safe passage on the trail. You will also experience a variety of micro climates, from high alpine to rainforest, as you gradually descent approximately 3,500 vertical meters.
