Photos of The Choro Trek in Bolivia

What's New
The Choro Trek in Bolivia begins with a steep climb to just over 5,000 meters into the Andes Mountains. At that point, the surroundings are a starkly beautiful lunar landscape of rocky and snowy crags above the tree line. The beautiful hike goes past many mountain homesteads built of stone. Along many of the early portions of the hike, the trail itself is lined with the stone walls used to mark the fields and pastures of the poor mountain people that live there. Eventually, the trail begins a slow descent through increasingly tropical jungle. The trail there is lined with myriad wildflowers of nearly every color. As one descends from the higher altitude of the Andes Mountains, the trail crosses many rivers, some with precarious bridges. This is a premier multi-day hike and one I highly recommend.
