DURATION: 1O HOURS
The small town of Coroico is located in the subtropical area north of La Paz, which is classed as a cloud forest due to its location. There are two roads – a new paved one or the old one built over 60 years ago. The old road is narrow and is quite an adventure with dramatic scenery and breath-taking hairpin bends. The area is surrounded by coffee, banana, citrus fruit and coca fields. The 3-hour journey down from the highland plain to the Yungas covers the region’s different ecosystems and climates. You will be captivated by panoramic views of singular beauty as you reach 4,700 m, before descending to 1,150 m to the village of Yolosa in just one hour. The road winds up to Coroico where you visit coffee, coca and citrus fruit plantations. In the village of Coroico you will be able to visit the market, see people going about their daily life and look out at the stunning views from a lookout point. Have lunch and enjoy the semi-tropical surroundings or take a dip in a hotel swimming pool. Return to La Paz at the end of the afternoon.
