Overview
Apolobamba National Park extends from the Andean highlands to the verdant tropical lowlands of the northern reaches of the department of La Paz. Originally created to protect the endangered cameloid the "vicuña" the park is home to dozens of traditional and colonist communities. Among them are three villages in the highland region that have joined together to receive guests in their communities along a three day trek, named "PachaTrek." Visitors to this spectacular region will trek about four hours each day as they descend with local guides from the village of Qutapampa to the town of Charazani, the regional administrative capital. Each day you will be accompanied by locals and stay in comfortable lodges that they built as part of their initiative. You'll learn about the day to day lives of the locales, the traditional foods they prepare and the handicrafts and medicinal plants that are a living part of their culture.

I took a package of 3 tours with LapAz on Foot- Urban Trek, Tiwananku and Titicaca and the gorgeous canyons of Las Animas and Palca. Milenka coordinated all of this well and provided me a detailed package of information. Grace was my guide for 3 whole days and she was absolutely

La Paz on Foot provided excellent, professional, private tours for both Chacaltaya and the Uyuni salt flats (1 day). They were very flexible to accommodate a late change in schedule due to weather as well! Highly recommend!

We did Palca Canyon hike with La Paz on Foot, that provide transportation for our group (large van with a very good driver), box lunches, and, of course, a guide. The person who handled organizing things for us, Milenka, was very helpful and responsive over email and whatsapp,

We were a group visiting an NGO in La Paz with a day off at the end - wanting to get a view of this interesting city for a morning. La Paz on Foot was recommended; 2 guides arrived with a good plan - and asked us what we wanted. Adjustments made, off we went. To the

Dear Cal, Greetings from La Paz. Thank you for taking a moment to share your feedback on the recent Urban Trek that you participated in with La Paz on Foot. While I understand your disappointment with not having been able to visit the more typical attractions of our city, it seems that the host organization that asked us to organize the outing did not provide your group with an adequate description of the itinerary of the trek prior to departure. Well before the day of the trek, we gave your host organization a complete itinerary that clearly describes what the experience is like and that it does not include visits to churches, plazas and the like. We so sorry about that confusion and next time will double check that tour participants have been fully informed about the conditions of the trek and the points of interest to be visited. I hope that you will visit us again and if so, please do not hesitate to contact us as I am confident that, given more information about your interest, will be able to organize an experience to your liking. I hope that you will consider removing your feedback from TripAdvisor, as you can see we have an excellent track record for high quality, responsible travel and can guarantee you that the errors you describe are the result of poor communication as opposed to negligence. Thank you very much,
