Juri Khota to Chacapampa
A piece of the Cordillera Real
This trekking that consists of going from the Juri Khota lagoon located in Tuni Condoriri to a small town called Chacapampa in the Zongo valley, this is good because you go down more and more and you are not kept at the same altitude.
Undoubtedly highly recommended for those who want to acclimatize.
