This trek begins in the northernmost town of Pelechuco near the Peruvian border in the northernmost remote corner of the Apolobamba range and heads south through one of the most impressive ranges of the Bolivian Andes. Surrounded by majestic glacier-covered peaks and deep Andean valleys you will trek through the home of condors and the Kallawaya spiritual healers.
A truly impressive region with peaks over 20,000’ and many solitary summits and deep Andean valleys. We begin with a drive across the Altiplano and Lake Titicaca and into Ulla-Ulla National Park until we get close to the Peruvian border. The trek heads south, the length of the range and crosses passes close to 17,000’ providing us with truly impressive views of the remote Andes.
The history of gold mining in the region dates from the time of the Incas and continued with the Spanish as evident of the old mining centers we will pass by along the way. We finish the trek in the southern point of the Apolobamba in the town of Curva, the home of the itinerant medicine men known as the Kallawaya. A final drive across the Andes, Altiplano and Lake Titicaca will deliver us to the city of La Paz. One of the most impressive tours we offer in a truly remote location.
