El Choro Trek

The Choro trail runs 42km from the high altitude pass of La Cumbre down to the subtropical Yungas valleys. In three days you descend more than 3,000m, passing from treeless, rocky landscapes to misty cloud forests and muddy, verdant jungle paths. It felt quite amazing to be walking on a pre-Columbian path that so many feet have traversed in the past.
