El Choro Classic 3 Day Inca Trek


Budget El Choro Trek Option - The El Choro trek is the most popular trek with tourists due to its easy accessibility from La Paz, stunning views and varied scenery. Ranging from chilly Andean mountains, down through cloud forest to semi tropical rainforest it offers a range of conditions to deal with but is also a fantastic introduction to the varied environments of Bolivia and the different conditions you can encounter trekking here.

DAY 1 – La Paz to  Challapampa – Mountains and Inca Paving

You will be picked up from the hotel at around 08:30 am.  in private transport for the 45 min to 1 hour drive to  La Cumbre (4.700 m.a.s.l.) which is the starting point for the trek. Here it can be very cold in the mornings and it is not uncommon to find snow and ice on the ground so you will need warm clothing for this section where you will start the trek which is going to lead us to the warm valleys of Los Yungas.  We will walk up to 4.900 m. and here we will find the pre inca trail and then we start to descend.  After around a  6 hour walk, we will arrive to the village of Challapampa where we will set up camp.

DAY 2 – Challapampa to San Francisco – Cloud Forest Views  

Today is a harder walking day and involves several up and down sections . As the day goes on the vegetation becomes denser and the climate more tropical. The views are stunning and very typical of the “Yungas” cloud forest area. After around 6.5- hours walk we will arrive to San Francisco where we eat and spend the night camping

DAY 3 – San Francisco to Coroico – Semi Tropical Jungle Trails

The last day involves around 5 or 6 hours walking and is mostly very hot so you will need plenty of water and it is advisable to use insect repellent. The trek ends at the village of Chairo where we will return in private transport to La Paz.
