Cordillera De Los Frailes Tour - 3 Days/2 Nights

Well-known as the home of the Jalq´a people. It’s an imposing mountain range which creates a formidable barrier between Chuquisaca and Potosí.

This area is characterized by the diversity of attractions which are a combination of nature, ethnography, culture and archeology.

Visiting the most interesting villages of the “Cordillera de los Frailes” like Chataquila, Chaunaca, Maragua and Quila Quila is a true adventure.

Almost no traffic, hardly any tourist and the real indigenous Bolivian people that most of the time only speak Quechua, their native language.
