Takesi Trekking 3 Days from La Paz, Mountains in Bolivia

CODE : LPTK3C

Takesi trekking, available from April to October (minima 2 persons)

This is one of the most impressive and popular downhill walks in the Andes among  travelers and locals. This trail links the barren Altiplano with the lush subtropical Yungas. It also gives you the rare opportunity to witness amazing landscapes. There are spectacular views of the Mururata Peak and you will pass abandoned mines, cascading rivers, exquisite lagoons and quaint villages. This is one of the best preserved pre-Inca trails and almost half of the trail consists of extraordinary stonework/paving making this trip incredibly accessible without taking away from the adventurous river crossings and camping in the great outdoors. Your trip will come to an end in one of Bolivia’s oldest towns, Yanacachi.
