Gravity Bolivia coordinated a day ride out here for me. This place was like traveling through three different continents. Not only was the terrain spectacular, but so were the local villagers in Takesi. Ride hard and look out for the llamas!

The Trail is beautiful!! We made it with bad weather, snow at the pass and rain down the valleys. The trail gets very slippery, so plan in more time on rainy days. We made it in two days, we camped in kapaci and got to...More

Amazing trek which can be done in 2 days at easy steps. What I loved about it, is that you get to experience the climate change and altitude first hand. You start a really high elevation in the cold cumbre and end in a tropical...More

This is a trek that follows an old Inca road, which in certain parts is remarkably well preserved and in other parts hardly recognizable anymore. When friends come over, I like to take them trekking the Takesi, as it's mostly downhill after the highpass, so...More
