Cordillera Apolobamba

North of Lake Titicaca and the Cordillera Real, near the Peruvian border, is the remote Cordillera Apolobamba. This is a wild land of incomparable natural beauty and home to the famed Kallawayas, Bolivia's ancient medicine men. You may hardly see another soul during a trek in this area, and the few that you do see might not speak Spanish as their first language. Here condors soar over the mountains, herds of vicuñas run free and even the endangered spectacled bear occasionally makes an appearance.

The Cordillera Apolobamba stretches from Charazani north to Pelechuco and then on into Peru. The area has its own park, Area Natural de Manejo Integrado Nacional Apolobamba (ANMINA), more commonly known as the Area Protegida Apolobamba.
