In the well known capital of Bolivia, is Sucre. A UN heritage site wherein lies a small trekking company that took me for a wonderful experience in the rural side of Bolivia.
Condor Trekkers caters to all age groups, but more importantly, they provide well rounded guides. The wholesome guides provided safety as we trekked and ensured that they had answered all our questions about the area and its inhabitants.
We had to improvise at times because the trek was not always there!
These protected areas hold vast amounts of resources!
This was our picnic lunch for the couple of days that we went trekking!Local village children that spoke some Spanish, Aymara and Quechua! We bought some bracelets from them!
Whilst most tourist would do a Jungle tour and/or a Pampas tour, for some reason my head had conjured up that it would be a good idea to do a survival tour. This little self-made contraption was my shelter for 2 nights. Carrying only a machete, a mosquito net and the clothes on my body, we set out a 3d 2n venture into the Amazon, Bolivia for a survival ‘tour’
We dug out these little bad boys and went fishing with them!
Cocoa fruits! Often known to make chocolate, this fruit has proven most useful for a sugar supplement.
That tree sitting on the ground was cut down by our guide within 5mins! And all we did was to extract the Palmetto.
Our guide was excellent at getting food for us! All he did was stand in the water and slash his machete through the water and up popped all the dead fish!Freshly made sugar cane!
