YUNGA CRUZ TREK
This trail runs by the Easten flank of mount Illimani and descends to the sub-tropical Yungas. This trek allows us to visit the last dominions of the Royal Andes Range.
This trek between the village of Chuñavi and the Sud Yungas’ provincial capital, Chulumani. This is one of your best bets for wildlife watching, as there’s less traffic here than on other treks. Keep your eyes open for Andean foxes, condors, and plenty of birds and butterflies.
There are a couple of variations to the standard trek, including a pass over the northern shoulder of Illimani to get you started, as well as an alternative – and considerably more spectacular – route over Ciudad Cerro Khala, which begins in Lambate. There are no official campsites along the route, although there are plenty of spots along the way to set up camp.
Note: Taking this trip can be very thirsty, try to have water for the whole trip
