3 Days La Cumbre 4900 mtrs to Chojlla Mine1750 mtrs.

Takesi Trek

We recommend this short classic trek to all those having a short stay in La Paz and for climbers that have finished their expeditions. At first, we see a typical landscape of high mountains and then finish in the sub-tropical Yungas, the whole time following an ancient trail made in pre-inca times.

Camping at 2.800 m. above sea level.
