1. La Paz - Cumbre (4643m/15.230ft) – Challapampa (2800m/9.186ft) * A car brings us to La Cumbre, a mountain pass at 4643m/15.233ft, from where we start our trek that follow the pre-Colombian Inca trail that served as connection between the valleys of the Yungas and the Altiplano. First the trail rises to pass the Apacheta mountain pass at 4860m/15.945ft, and from here we walk down, following the river Lama Khuchu, to the valley Samaña Pampa. We continue until we reach the river Chukura which we will follow for the reminder of the trek. We continue to Challapampa where we set up camp.
2. Challapampa – San Fransisco/Bella Vista * From Challapampa we continue our trek in the valley and we pass by the village El Choro by following the crystalline waters of the river Jucumarini. By ascending the Cuesta del Diablo and passing the bridge Coscapa we slowly enter the Yungas. Once we have crossed the bridge of Choro we continue to Sandillani where we camp close to the house of the Japanese hermit.
3. San Fransisco/Bella Vista – Chairo – La Paz * Surrounded by a landscape of exuberant vegetation we continue our trek to Yolosita. From here a vehicle will bring us to Coroico from where we return to La Paz by bus. End of our services
