Taquesi Inka Trail -3DAY

3 Days

The Takesi Inca Trail at La Paz – Bolivia, is known as one of the most impressively engineered Inca trails. Takesi Inca Trail is very important link between the Andean highlands and the Yungas subtropics remains one of the best paved pre-Colombian paths. The trek is mostly downhill and is one of the shorter Inca trails.

We offer this trek as both a more strenuous 2 day trek or as a more leisurely 3 day trek.

Day 1: La Paz to San Francisco Mine to Estancia Takesi

Day 2:  Estancia Takesi to Kacapi

Day 3: Kacapi to Chojlla Mine to La Paz

We will pick you up at your hotel in La Paz and proceed by private transport to the San Francisco Mine, where we will begin our trek. Our trek will begin with an uphill section until we reach the 4600 meter pass, an area with impressive Inca paving. From the pass, we will descend to Estancia Takesi, an ancient village home to llama and alpaca herders. We will advance a bit beyond the village to our campsite, where we will have dinner and spend the night in tents. Our total trekking time for the day will be around 4 hours.

Our trek today to the small population of Kacapi will take around 5 hours. As we descend throughout the day often alongside crystal clear rivers, we will reach warmer climes and enjoy denser tropical vegetation alongside the trail. We will have dinner and camp at Kacapi.

The final leg of our trek to the Chojlla Mine will take around 3 hours. We will end the trek in a warm and humid tropical environment. After lunch, our transport will take us back to La Paz.
