The Choro trek is one of the most popular downhill treks in Bolivia and achievable by nearly everybody. A shame to miss if time allows you the luxury of experiencing this fabulous and sometimes demanding adventure. Walk in the steps of the pre-Incas from a barren 4,900m down a beautifully preserved stone path into the subtropical vegetation of the Yungas, where you’ll see citrus & banana trees, coffee and coca plantations, colorful birds and butterflies and if you are extremely lucky you’ll catch a glimpse of the elusive spectacled bear staring back at you. Expect to get your feet wet in the pristine waterfall-fed stream crossings and bring a photo to show to the crazy old Japanese man in exchange for a spot to set up camp in his garden. Ending in the town of Chairo you can choose to stay in the lovely tropical town of Coroico or return directly to La Paz.
