Hi everyone,

I'm travelling to Bolivia in a couple of weeks and my friend and I wanted to do a moderate 2-3 day trek around the Yungas or Cordilleras. We're around Coroico and La Paz so would love to find a scenic trek from one of the two but obviously if people suggest travelling outside of these by a couple of hours to find a great trek we'd do this too.

Basically any help anyone could offer would be gratefully received... we'd just like a chance to trek in these mountains knowing we've found a great trek.

Also, any information on reputable tour guides/companies for this sort of trek and also for the Uyuni salt flat tours would be massively helpful!

Have you checked out some of the other blogs yet?

Helenandiain had a good time on their trek:


Russiatooz ended up in Coroico, so that might be a trek you want to do:


Just use the search box to search for Yungas or Cordilleras and I'm sure you'll find way more than you need.

i wouldnt worry too much about the tour operators for the salt flats , none of them are reputable anyway, there are all pretty much the same, same cars, same drivers, same food and hostels, same routes.. just have a short 30 minute walk around Uyuni as its small and interesting and pop into the tour shops
