The Takesi trail links the desert Altiplano and the Yungas, the lush subtropical valleys covered with thick cloud forest, sitting between the high Andes and the infinite green carpet of the Amazon Basin. The trail, starting close to La Paz, follows sections of pre-Columbian paved roads, and finishes more than 3,000m (9,000ft) lower. You cross part of the Altiplano, hike along green canyons, cross rivers and visit abandoned mines...all an adventure.
