Choro Inka Trail -3DAY

3 Days

The Choro hike is within the Cotapata National Park and Integrated Management Natural Area. The trail was an ancient Inca trade route used in pre-Colombian times and today passes by Incan ruins. The road follows a transitional landscape, beginning in the grey rocky, snow-capped Andean pass of La Cumbre right the way down into the lush green tropical forest in the Yungas where waterfalls aplenty flow into the Chucura and Huarinilla River.

Nowadays it provides walking access (and even cycling or driving!) between towns in La Cumbre to the small remote villages in the valley below. The path ends in Chairo but the road access for cars ends at the hamlet of Chucura ahead of where the path crosses a river before Challapampa campground.

The highest point of the hike is La Cumbre, at an eye watering 4,600m. The views from here are unmissable, a stunning cross-section between the Andean Range and the Amazon rainforest.

The total distance of the hike is 44 km. long from La Cumbre to Chairo and is typically walked in 3 days.
