his trekking takes place on a pre-Columbian path in the Quimsa Cruz Mountain Range. It joins the high mountain with the valleys which slopes are covered of more and more dense vegetation. The path goes again in direction to the Yungas and to the hot springs lost in the middle of the nature. Besides, the Quimsa Cruz Mountain Range is an undiscovered destination for tourists; you will probably be the only trekkers.

One of the main attractions of this trek is the granite peaks that we pass by the second day. It is perfectly possible to lengthen the trekking program in order to remain there several days just profiting these cliffs -a paradise for climbers.
