Description
Country: 
Activity Type: 

This trek follows an ancient Inca trail and takes us through the upper part of the Madidi national Park, recognized as one of the richest regions in biodiversity on earth. We begin our adventure by 4x4 making our way across the rolling plains of the Altiplano before crossing the Apolobamba mountains and dropping down into the old village of Pelechuco. On our trek we cross high alpine ridges with a vast panorama of the Amazon far below. We then drop down through thick cloud forest to the fast moving Rio Tuichi. The trek passes through both dry forest and rain forest giving us the opportunity to spot an incredible variety of wildlife from monkeys and jaguars to the rare Andean spectacled bear. We end our trek in the town of Apolo from where we make our way back up the Altiplano and onto La Paz
